The cold front arrives in Southern Arizona tomorrow night, bringing the best chance of valley rain & mountain snow. Expect a 70% chance of showers late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. An isolated thunderstorm can't be ruled out.

Showers & snow above 5,500 feet tapers off after the Wednesday morning rush. Valley rainfall totals approach the 0.10-0.50" range. Mount Lemmon, Mount Graham and the White Mountains should pick up 5-10" snow above 7,000 feet.
