TUCSON - We begin the work week with temperatures about 7 degrees above average under mostly sunny skies. That places the mercury in the low-to-mid 70s across the city of Tucson.
A couple of areas of low pressure will move through this week, and that will finally put a chill in the air. Temperatures will lower to the mid-to-upper 60s Tuesday through Friday, with nighttime lows in the upper 30s-to-mid 40s.
Late Tuesday and Early Wednesday we can expect a slight chance of showers mainly from Tucson and points east.
According to Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, the last time Tucson has seen temperatures in the 30s was February 25th last winter, when we dropped to 36 degrees.
Strong high pressure re-builds by next weekend and expect temperatures to climb back into the low-to-mid 70s - some areas will return to readings 10 degrees above average.
