TUCSON - Temperatures are on the rise to start the weekend.
Daytime highs topped out six degrees above average to kick off the weekend as Tucson hits 87, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. High pressure will continue to build into the desert southwest keeping temperatures about 5-10 degrees above average for late October. Sunny skies and seasonable warm temperatures will remain through the first half of the upcoming work week.
Late next week models pick up on a pacific low moving into the west coast. Southern Arizona could feel its first effects of this system by Friday as temperatures fall back into the low 80s. Moisture looks to be limited with this fall disturbance just bringing some cloud cover and breezy conditions into next weekend.
