Coldest storm system of the season coming soon

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Winter warmth to wrap the work week, then a big temperature drop arrives.

Highs reach the low 70s this afternoon, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. By Friday, temperatures spike to the upper 70s, running 10-12° above normal for mid January standards. Cloud cover begins to increase Friday afternoon, ahead of a strong cold front forming off the Pacific coast. 

The cold front sweeps across Arizona on Saturday, as high struggles to reach the mid 50s. There is a 30% chance of valley rain and mountain snow Saturday afternoon and evening. 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. Another widespread metro freeze can't be ruled out Monday morning as well.
