TUCSON - 90 degree weather with a landslide victory today.
Abnormal warmth remains thanks to high pressure anchored near Salt Lake City, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Today's forecast high of 90 degrees would tie the record high temperature for a Presidential Election Day, set back in 1924. Overall, high temps run 9-11 degrees above average across southern Arizona with sunny skies.
Old Man Winter crashes the warm party by week's end. A cold front formulating in the Gulf of Alaska drops into the state, kicking up the winds and producing isolated showers/mountain snow Friday and Saturday. Rainfall amounts appear to be rather light, with perhaps an inch or two of snow possible for Mt. Lemmon.
Much cooler weather invades the Grand Canyon State over the weekend, with highs only reaching the low 60's. Overnight lows drop into the 30's for Tucson this weekend, with the first Fall freeze likely in Santa Cruz & Cochise Counties.
