From record heat to snow?
Meteorologist: April Madison
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A very strong, cold storm is expected to bring wind, rain, and much cooler temps to southern Arizona. Some areas may even get snow.
We will see clouds increasing with a slight chance of showers starting Thursday night. By Friday, and into Saturday, we will see an even greater chance for valley rain and mountain show, mainly from Tucson northeastward, to the White Mountains.
Precipitation amounts are expected to be light with this system. That said, snow levels by midday Saturday are expected to drop as low as 5000 feet across the White Mountains, to around 6500 feet across southeast Cochise County. Up to 4 inches of snow may accumulate above 6000 feet by Saturday night. Dry conditions are expected to return by Sunday and Monday for all southeast Arizona.
A significant drop in our daily highs and lows will also accompany this system. Widespread freezing is possible for eastern valley locations by Sunday night. The areas most likely effected include Cochise, Graham, and Greenlee Counties.
