TUCSON - It has been forty-eight hours of off and on valley rain and mountain snow but it's not out of the forecast yet.
As of 6pm Tucson's two day storm total sits at 0.64" only receiving a trace of rain today at TIA but more valley rain and mountain snow is possible through tonight. As a secondary storm system passes through Arizona valley locations could still pick up an additional 0.10-0.25" by the early morning hours.
As for mountain snow the locations above 5000 feet could receive an additional 3-7". There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the Catalina, Rincon and White Mountains until midnight for the snowy conditions.
Clearing begins Sunday with an afternoon filled with mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures remaining in the 50s for Tucson. Warmer days coming to start the work week as high pressure builds the temperatures back into the 70s as soon as Tuesday.
Watching another cool and wet weather system forecast to move through the region on Wednesday. Looks like isolated valley rain and mountain snow showers possible for Southern Arizona once again for the middle of the week. Temperatures go from the low 70s Tuesday right back to the 50s on Wednesday.
