First freeze possible for parts of metro

TUCSON - Chilly air settles in to begin the workweek. It will remain seasonable to round out the weekend as Tucson tops out in the upper 60s under sunny skies. A weak weather disturbance will offer some breezy conditions this afternoon with gusts to 20mph in the metro and 30mph east of the city. Cool and dry air will move in for Monday morning with lows in Tucson dipping down to the mid 30s. Some of the outlying areas of Tucson will likely hit the first freeze of the season while places in Cochise County will see another round of subfreezing conditions. Temperatures may drop a few more degrees to start Tuesday bringing Tucson even closer to the first official freeze of the year. Currently, there isn't a freeze watch or warning in effect for Tucson but it may still be a good idea to cover overly sensitive plants. Temperatures warm up fast for the second half of the week as a ridge of high pressure builds over the area. Daytime highs by Thanksgiving will be ten degrees above average putting Tucson in the mid to upper 70s.
