Weather Outlook


Date & Time:  12/2/2016 11:40 AM MST
Forecaster:  Waters, S.

Mostly cloudy out there now with very little wind at any of our stations.  Not the case to our west, where low pressure is causing wind gusts to 25mph along the CO river basin and in southern CA.  Winds will increase later in the day, but here in central AZ we’ll stay calm until this evening, when winds will pick up in the northern zones.  Tomorrow the southern zones will get in on the breezes during the afternoon, with gusts to 20 mph, and there will be the slightest chance for sprinkles in the eastern and northeastern zones in the AM.  Sunday will be mostly sunny with just a few breezes in the northern zones.  Temperatures will remain on the chilly side today, with highs in the low 60s in the metro area and points south and mid to upper 50s in the north.  Overnight lows will range from 40-45 just about everywhere due to wind mixing.  Tomorrow we’ll see significant warming with highs in the mid-60s north to upper 60s south.  Sunday will see an additional 2-4 degrees of warming.
