Forecast for Monday, January 22, 2018

It’s freezing this morning! At least it was at 4:33 when we dipped down to 30 at the airport. My aloe vera plants are all chill in the warmth of the living room, so there’s that. High pressure nosing back in for a warming trend this week. High clouds today for partly sunny skies and possible sunrise and sunset enhancement. Call it partly sunny and still cool with a high in the low 60s.

Decreasing clouds this evening and another cold night with a low near freezing.

Sunny tomorrow with a high in the upper 60s. Low 70s Wednesday. Mid 70s Thursday. A storm missing us to the north will knock our temperatures back a bit. Sunny Friday mid 60s. Upper 60s Saturday. Mid 70s Sunday. Enjoy!

Forecast for Sunday, January 21, 2018

We hit yesterday’s high of 69 at 10:56 in the morning and the low of 44 at 11:48 last night. One of those days as a cold front blew through mid day. The airport only picked up .02″ inches of rain, but my apartment here in Oro Valley received around a tenth of an inch. As my Dad likes to say, beats a swift kick! FREEZE WARNING in effect until 9:00 this morning, but if you didn’t bring your plants in last night they should be OK. Looks like most of us will stay in the upper 30s this morning. Tonight is another story!

Sunshine and cool today in yesterday’s storm’s wake. High in the mid 50s.

FREEZE WARNING for reals overnight tonight with a low near 30. My plants get to come inside and watch me play Minecraft.

Some high cloudiness tomorrow hopefully for sunrise and sunset enhancement. Call it partly sunny with a high in the low 60s.

Sunny Tuesday upper 60s. Low 70s Wednesday. Mid 70s Thursday. Then a storm missing us to the north may kick up some breezes and cool us off a tad. Mid 60s Friday and Saturday. Enjoy!

Forecast for Saturday, January 20, 2018

Our storm approacheth! Looks like Plan A is in place. The system moves through this afternoon and evening with scattered showers along and behind the associated cold front that should move through by early afternoon. I don’t want to get our hopes up too much. Still looks like SOME valley locations MAY pick up up to a quarter of an inch of rain. Snow levels will start high but then crash to near 5,000 feet. 1 to 2 inches of snow possible between 5,000 and 7,000 feet with 2 to 5 inches possible above that. Today’s high in the low 60s should occur before the cold front with dropping temperatures this afternoon and evening.

Lingering showers possible until about 8:00 tonight then clearing skies with a FREEZE WATCH in effect from 1:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. That means go out and watch it freeze! Also, my plants get to come inside and watch TV.

Sunny and cool tomorrow with a high in the mid 50s. FREEZE WATCH again Monday morning from 1:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Please for the love of all that is right and good consider letting the teenagers sleep inside.

The warm up begins Monday with a high in the low 60s. Upper 60s Tuesday. Low 70s Wednesday and Thursday. Mid 60s Friday. Enjoy!

Forecast for Friday, January 19, 2018

Our storm is running a few hours behind original schedule, but it is on the way even as I type. The big news is we MAY get a bit more rain than first expected! Time will tell. No matter what, big changes are headed our way.

A few high clouds today for possible sunrise and sunset enhancement and a bit warmer than yesterday with a high in the upper 70s.

Partly cloudy tonight with a low near 50ish.

Our storm moves our way tomorrow with the associated cold front due sometime midday/early afternoon. Showers ahead and along the front with up to a quarter of an inch possible in valley locations. Snow levels dropping to around 5,000 feet with about an inch or so possible between 5,000 and 6,000 feet and 2-4 inches above that. High in Tucson in the low 60s early in the day and then falling. WNW winds 10-20 mph and gusty.

Showers hanging around in the evening then clearing skies overnight tomorrow night with a low near freezing.

Sunny Sunday 55. 30 to start the day Monday with a high in the low 60s. Upper 60s Tuesday. Low 70s Wednesday and Thursday. Enjoy!

Forecast for Thursday, January 18, 2018

Warming up a little bit today with a few high clouds headed our way for possible sunset enhancement this evening. Today’s high in the low 70s compared to our average of 65 this time of year.

Mostly clear skies tonight with a low in the low 40s which is only a couple of degrees above average.

Mostly sunny and warmer tomorrow with a high in the mid 70s.

A cold but dry storm system moves through the state this weekend. Breezes picking up on Saturday as the cold front blows through with a chance for scattered showers. Only expecting up to a tenth of an inch of rain for valley locations. Snow levels dropping to near 3,500 feet by Sunday morning, but by then most of the snow will have fallen. Only expecting an inch or so for our local mountains. Saturday’s high in the upper 50s.

The storm exits the state on Sunday leaving cold temperatures in its wake. Low near 30 to start the day Sunday with a high in the mid 50s. Upper 20s Monday morning with a high in the mid 60s.

Warming up next week. Sunny Tuesday upper 60s. Low 70s Wednesday. Enjoy!
