TUCSON - While the rain and snow may be leaving, Old Man Winter's turning the "Sonoran Desert" into the "Sonoran Tundra".
According to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, the Winter Weather Advisory for Graham & Greenlee Counties will expire at 11 AM today. Scattered showers and mountain snow will persist this afternoon east of Tucson, with mostly cloudy skies across eastern Pima and Santa Cruz Counties.
The first freeze of the Fall comes tonight for Tucson, with overnight temps ranging from the 20's in Cochise County to the upper 20's/low 30's across Pima County. A Freeze Watch is in effect both tonight and tomorrow night for the Tucson metro, Tohono O'odham Nation and south central Pinal County. Temps will drop at or below 32 degrees in these areas. This Freeze Watch will likely be upgraded to a Freeze Warning.
With frigid temps in the forecast, remember the 3 P's: bring in pets, cover up plants & wrap exposed water pipes.
Jeff will break down the chilly work week forecast tonight on News 4 Tucson at 10.
