TUCSON - Improving weather is about 24 hours away.
Expect isolated showers over Tucson with scattered showers east of the metro this afternoon, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. As an area of low pressure heads eastward, showers will taper off by late afternoon in Tucson & by tonight over Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties.
Rainfall amounts may reach up to 0.10" in Tucson. 3-6" snow is possible for Mt. Graham, where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon today.
Much nicer weather is in store for the weekend. Saturday features lots of sun and highs in the low to mid 60's. A cold front passes through the northern part of the state Sunday, with gusty winds up to 30 MPH possible for southern Arizona.
Heading into Match Play and Rodeo week, Mother Nature looks to cooperate. High temps will be in the 60's and 70's with sunny skies.
