TUCSON - Old Man Winter is about 24 hours away.
This afternoon looks to be one of the best days of the work week, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Highs Monday top out in the low to mid 60's, under partly cloudy skies. Winds should be calmer than yesterday, peaking around 10-15 MPH out of the southwest.
The first of two Pacific storm systems moves in tomorrow, touching off scattered showers and mountain snow by late Tuesday morning. Much cooler temps and gusty winds are also expected Tuesday, with precipitation wrapping up after sunset. Up to 0.10" valley rain is anticipated, with 1-4" snow above 7,000 feet.
High temps Tuesday will be in the 50's, which is roughly 25-30 degrees cooler than temperatures we saw Saturday.
Storm system number two arrives Thursday, with another round of valley rain/mountain snow through Friday. This second storm doesn't look as cold, with highs hovering around 70.
Abundant sunshine and 70's are on tap for the upcoming weekend.
