Forecast for Tuesday, October 31, 2017

It’s a good time to be a ghost or goblin. Thunder and lightning (shouldn’t it be lightning and thunder?) last night was a nice touch! Just a trace of rain on my perch here in southern Oro Valley, but someone in the OV got .90″! The light show was nice too. I hope you got some rain where you are. The Tucson International Airport got skunked again so we will end October officially high and dry with zero, zip, nada, nothing for the month of October. The low that brought us all this excitement has moved east and we are left with cooler, downright pleasant, weather in its wake. A batch of clouds will be moving over us later today with the possibility of a few sprinkles. Otherwise near average today through Tuesday with highs near 80 and lows in the mid 50s. A bit warmer Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid 80s. Then a low along the west coast will bring us some moisture with a very slight chance for showers and highs back to the low 80s Sunday and Monday.

Forecast for Monday, October 30, 2017

An upper level low continues to drop SSE along the California coast. It is expected to turn the corner later today and track across southern Arizona tonight. As a result we have scattered showers in the forecast with maybe an isolated thunderstorm or two, hopefully near you! Rainfall amounts are expected to be on the light side except for the mountains and those fortunate enough to get a storm. The system exits as quickly as it enters and we’ll be left with Sunny skies to start November. Tomorrows expected high of 80 is exactly average for this time of year. Yesterday’s 91 is likely to be the last 90 degree day of 2017. Enjoy!

Mostly sunny skies today with increasing clouds late for possible sunset enhancement. Today’s high near 85.

Scattered showers tonight with isolated thunderstorms possible becoming partly cloudy with a low near 58.

Mostly sunny tomorrow with a high near 80. Sunny mid 80s Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Low 80s Sunday.

Forecast for Sunday, October 29, 2017

Another really warm day before a weak storm system currently off the central California coast heads our way. It will sink toward Baja California before it takes a turn tomorrow and tracks along the International Border. As it moves to our south tomorrow night we’ll have a slight chance for light rain and cooler temperatures too. Halloween looks to be the ghoulist, er, I mean coolest, day of the seven day forecast with highs just a couple of degrees above average. After the low departs we’ll have a bit of a warming trend late next week as high pressure noses back into southern Arizona. Mornings remain refreshingly cool!

Sunny today with a high near 92.

Clear tonight with a low near 58.

Mostly sunny tomorrow with a high in the mid 80s and a chance for light rain Monday night. Partly cloudy Tuesday low 80s. Sunny low 80s Wednesday. Mid 80s Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Forecast for Saturday, October 28, 2017

Maybe October won’t tie for the driest month on record after all! Or, maybe it still will, but there is a chance for light rain (half the calories of our regular rain) Monday night. Still warm this weekend, but at least the spell of mid 90s has been broken. Tomorrow will be the last 90 degree day of the year assuming the forecast comes exactly true. Then a weak storm system is forecast to track along the International Border giving us a chance for showers Monday night. Another system may head our way for later in the week. Whether that brings showers to our weather or not, temperatures will finally be where they are supposed to be for this time of year. Enjoy!

Sunny today with a high near 88. Near 90 tomorrow. Partly cloudy Monday with a chance for showers Monday night with a high in the low 80s. Mostly sunny Tuesday low 80s. Sunny Wednesday near 80. Low 80s Thursday and Friday.

Forecast for Friday, October 27, 2017

It’s Friiiidaaaaay!!!

A bit cooler today as high pressure gets pushed a bit more to the west. Cooler air in the Plains is moving westward through New Mexico and will move into eastern areas of southern Arizona today knocking their temperatures down to average for this time of year. We remain above average but a few degrees of cooling today and tomorrow is a welcome relief! Back near 90 Sunday. Then a storm system approacheth. Looks like there may enough moisture east of us for showers Monday night into Tuesday, but for now it looks like we will stay dry in the Metro with just a few more clouds. It will cool us off quite a bit to start the work week! After that the computer models are all over the place, but we have plenty of time to sort that out, and we will, as we get closer. Stay tuned!

Sunny today with a high in the upper 80s to near 90.

Clear tonight with a low in the mid 50s.

Sunny mid 80s tomorrow. Near 90ish Sunday. Upper 80s Monday. Partly cloudy Tuesday low 80s. Sunny near 80 Wednesday. Low 80s Tuesday.
