TUCSON - Love it or hate it, more Winter weather is on tap.
Quiet and cool today, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Mostly sunny skies are anticipated this afternoon, with high temps running 8-10 degrees below average for mid-February. Overnight lows drop into the 30's and 40's, with portions of Cochise County dropping at or below 32 degrees by daybreak Thursday.
Round 2 of Winter weather moves in, courtesy of another Pacific cold front. Scattered showers will develop and move in late Thursday afternoon, lasting through Friday. Snow levels initially start out at 7,000 feet, but drop to 3,500 feet early Friday morning. Places like Oracle, Benson, Sierra Vista, Douglas and Willcox may see a dusting of snow waking up Friday.
Valley rainfall amounts should fall in the 0.10-0.25" range, with the highest amounts near the International Border. Mt. Lemmon, the Huachucas, Santa Ritas and Chiricahuas could see 2-5" snow between Thursday afternoon and Friday.
Improving weather is in store this weekend. Gusty winds may develop Sunday, as a cold front cuts through the northern part of the state.
