TUCSON - After a beautiful President's Day weekend expect conditions to deteriorate rapidly.
Temperatures have been in the 70s for three straight days now but there are only a couple more nice days left before out next winter storm, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. We'll see high remain in the low 70s under generally sunny skies through Tuesday.
Strong and cold winter storm moves into Southern Arizona on Wednesday bringing another round of rain and snow. A Winter Storm Watch has been posted across Southern Arizona between 5am-11pm Wednesday. Elevations above 4,000 feet will pick up significant snowfall creating hazardous driving conditions.
Valley locations could see up to 0.50" of rain with around 1" of snow possible down to 3,000 feet. Heavier snow will fall between 5,000-7,000 feet with 5-10" possible and the mountains could pick up over a foot.
The cold air that moves in with this system drops highs into the 40s on Wednesday accompanied with strong gusty winds. Chilly air sticks around through this upcoming weekend with highs generally in the mid to upper 50s and lows in the 30s for Tucson.
