Last leaves of autumn

Some trees, ferns and vines are putting on a sort of encore of autumn a month after the main fall color spectacle in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson.

Scattered showers will be possible this afternoon, mostly to the east and south of Tucson, as a storm system leaves the area.

Much cooler temperatures are getting closer to the Tucson area, with widespread freezing possible for locations east of Tucson from Thursday night into Friday morning.

And just to keep things interesting, a Fire Weather Watch is also in effect for Western Pima County tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., as low relative humidity and gusty winds may create critical fire conditions.
