Wednesday Forecast: Dry today, rainy tomorrow

TUCSON – Don’t put away your umbrella!

Scattered rain and snow showers moved through Southern Arizona yesterday. Rainfall amounts on the valley floors were light – generally around .10″. According to observation reports, 6″ of snow fell on Mt. Lemmon, and a few inches fell to valley floor locations including Oracle, Benson, and Huachuca City.

These showers cleared out but left behind chilly temperatures. A Hard Freeze Warning will remain in effect for Tucson westward until 8 a.m. this morning. Remember to wear a jacket today!

This afternoon will be dry under sunny skies. However, we are gearing up for another storm system that will move in Thursday through Saturday morning.

This is a wetter system, where rainfall amounts between 1.00-1.75” are expected across Southern Arizona. By Saturday, Mt. Lemmon could see a couple feet of snow. Valley locations between 5000-7000′ (I’m talking about you Bisbee and Oracle) could see between 6-18″ of snow by the time this system is over. By Saturday morning, snow levels could drop to 2500′, and that means Tucson could see a dusting.
