TUCSON - A cold front is bringing the first taste of winter to Southern Arizona.
A cold weather system is digging into Arizona this evening with some chilly air settling in for the next couple of days, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Many areas outside of the Tucson metro will experience freezing temperatures as soon as Monday morning. Tucson will wake up to the mid 30s with highs in the low 60s by Monday afternoon. Tomorrow will be the first time with below average highs in about twenty six days.
The coolest temperatures aren't expected until late Monday night and into Tuesday morning with a low of 31 for the Old Pueblo. A Freeze Warning has been posted for Pima County, including Tucson, from 1am to 8am Tuesday morning. A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect for Oracle and Mammoth during the same time period where lows could fall below 28. Make sure to protect your pets, plants and pipes over the next couple of nights.
Already tracking our next system which is forecast to make its way here late in the work week. This system has more moisture associated with it and brings a good chance at valley rain and mountain snow by late Thursday night and into Friday.
