KOLD FIRST ALERT FORECAST 10pm October 22, 2020

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Two strong systems will dive down the Rockies which will not only bring a double-digit drop in temperatures, but also a chance for valley rain and mountain snow across Arizona. The wind will increase ahead of these storms with low humidity values before the moisture moves in. That may mean that a Red Flag Warning is issued by Sunday. That means the fire danger is escalated due to strong wind and little moisture. It’s Sunday night through Tuesday when a chance for rain moves in. Snow is possible above 8,000 feet. Temperatures will drop to their lowest Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The first freeze of the season is possible across Cochise County.

TONIGHT: A mostly clear sky. Lows in the low 60s.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 90s.

SATURDAY: Clouds move in with highs in the upper 80s.

SUNDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy in with highs in the mid 80s. Windy.

MONDAY: 30% chance of rain. Partly sunny with highs in the mid 70s. Windy.

TUESDAY: 20% chance of rain. Partly sunny with highs in the upper 60s. Breezy.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny with highs near 70 degrees.
