Cold Temps Tonight, But Warming Up This Week

Weather Discussion:

Happy Veterans Day 2018, and a heartfelt thanks to all our veterans for their dedicated service protecting our freedoms in this great country.

Another dry cold front moved from north to south across Arizona this past weekend, bringing additional cooling to the area and a hard frost this morning. Lows tonight will again plummet to around 20 degrees F amid light wind and clear skies. Expect the temperatures to warm back up this week as high pressure rebuilds aloft along the West Coast. The cold air entrenched over the Great Basin has also driven Santa Ana winds across portions of California this past week, driving devastating wildfires. No significant rainfall or snowfall expected for the next week in Arizona or California.
