TUCSON - After a busy Sunday, a stronger winter storm will impact Southeastern Arizona this afternoon through tomorrow afternoon, potentially bringing some light snow even to Tucson!
The biggest impacts with this winter storm will be slick and slushy roads, gusty wind, low visibility and ponding in spots. Give yourself extra time this afternoon through Tuesday afternoon!
Showers will begin to spread from west to east this afternoon. Lower elevations will see mostly rain this afternoon and tonight with isolated thunderstorms possible. We could even see hail, once again, in some spots. As temperatures drop tonight, we should see some of that rain change over to snow!
With the cold air already in place, this system could continue to drop the snow level down to as low as 2,500 feet by tomorrow morning! Some valley locations, including Metro Tucson, could see light snow with up to 1" possible at this time. If the snow accumulates, it will be on colder surfaces like grass, car tops and roof tops!
As a result, A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect tonight for elevations around 2,500 feet, including Eastern Pima and Pinal County and lower elevations in Graham and Greenlee County.
A Winter Storm Warning will also go into effect for not only the higher elevations but all of Santa Cruz and Cochise County too starting this afternoon through early Tuesday evening. Snow totals could approach 1-2 feet for the highest peaks with 3 to 8 inches of snow in the lower elevations of Cochise and Santa Cruz County!
- Today: P.M. Showers likely (90%). High: 51°
- Tonight: Showers then rain/snow (80%). Low: 35°
- Tomorrow: A.M. rain/snow, then rain (70%). High: 47°
