Weather whiplash on the way

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Mother Nature's poised to flip the script over the next few days.

The first of two cold fronts sweeps through Arizona this afternoon, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Expect gusty east winds today up to 25 MPH as highs peak in the mid to upper 60s. A few spots may remain breezy overnight as clouds begin to clear out. Lows bottom out in the low to mid 40s.

After a late week warm-up to the 70s, the season's coldest storm system settles in. After morning lows reach the mid 40s, Saturday's high struggles to reach the mid 50s. There is a 30% chance of valley rain and mountain snow as the cold front slides across the Sonoran Desert. Rain & snow totals look light at the moment.

Behind the front, a frigid air mass moves in. Widespread freezing temperatures are expected by Sunday morning, followed by afternoon highs in the upper 50s. If Tucson reaches the freezing mark Sunday morning, it would only mark the third freeze of the season.
