Damaging winds, heavy rain and mountain snow is being served up for Thanksgiving dessert overnight

TUCSON – A strong cold front will move through the State overnight  dumping heavy rain, thunderstorms, damaging winds to 60 mph (for Cochise County) and up to 3 feet of snow above 8500 feet.

Here’s a timeline of the events:

Rainfall amounts could exceed an inch for the City of Tucson and compound some of the areas in Cochise County which saw flooding on Wednesday,

The snow level will drop precipitously, (as low as 4800′) so places like Oracle could even see some wet flakes by Friday. The Mountaintops could see 1-3 feet of snow.

The most damaging threat could be the winds across Cochise County so please batten secure large outdoor objects and drive with extra caution on the roadways.

The wind and rain should die down early Friday afternoon, but a chilly air-mass will stay in place. The City of Tucson won’t make it out of the 50s.
