TUCSON - A cold front brings valley rain, mountain snow and chilly temperatures to Southern Arizona to start the work week.
A winter weather system moving through Arizona will keep rain and snow chances around through Monday, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Rain chances will remain scattered with some valley locations picking up 0.25". Snow levels will drop to 5000 feet this afternoon with 1-3" possible, the heaviest snow will stay above 7000 feet with up to 6". Any leftover moisture late tonight will bring a dusting of snow down to 3500 feet.
Cool air will filter in behind our cold front today leaving highs in the low to mid 50s through Tuesday. A widespread freeze is possible for Southern Arizona both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Winds will also be on the rise today out of the west with Tucson seeing wind speeds of 10-20mph. Even stronger winds expected in Cochise County with gusts up to 35mph as our cold front moves through.
Warmer temperatures going into this upcoming weekend as the 70s return. Check out your True View 4 extended forecast here.
