TUCSON - As of 6 p.m. Friday, the Tucson International Airport picked-up 0.87" of rain which breaks the old daily record of 0.83" set back in 1983. According to Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, an unusually complex and warm Winter storm was moving through Southern Arizona. This storm also produced over 5" of rain on Mt. Lemmon. Meanwhile Winter Storm Warnings were still active for the highest elevations of our mountaintops where up to 2' of snow could pile-up, especially in the White Mountains. More valley rain is expected on Saturday, and the snow level will lower to 7500' meaning Mt Lemmon could still pick-up significant snowfall. There is only a slight chance isolated morning showers for Super Bowl Sunday with gradual clearing throughout the day. Much drier and warmer weather is in the forecast for next week.
