TUCSON - Portions of southern Arizona waking up to the first freezing temperatures of the season.
Temperatures this cool haven't been seen around the region since mid-March, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. With many locations outside of Tucson near or below the freezing mark a Freeze Warning remains in effect until 8am this morning.
Veteran's Day highs are expected to struggle to get into the upper 50s for Tucson and remain stuck in the low 50s for Graham and Cochise Counties. These temperatures are nearly 20 degrees below average for this time of year but will be accompanied with generally sunny skies.
Overnight lows are expected to be even cooler tonight with some areas dipping into the mid 20s. A Hard Freezing Warning remains in effect from 1am to 9am Monday morning including the towns of Nogales, Oracle, Safford, Sierra Vista and Willcox. Low lying areas of the Tucson-metro may also get down below the freezing mark therefore a Freeze Warning has been put in place for the same time period. Take the proper precautions to protect your pets, plants and pipes.
