Cold front queued up

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - A quick hitting cold front sweeps through the state over the next 24 hours.

According to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, gusty southwest winds develop during the afternoon hours. Metro Tucson can expect gusts to 30 MPH through this evening. An isolated shower can't be ruled out this afternoon in the Old Pueblo as highs peak in the mid 60s.

Wind gusts to 40 MPH are possible across Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties today. For that reason, these areas are under a Wind Advisory today from noon until 11 PM. Recent rainfall likely knocks down any potential for blowing dust.

There is a 30% chance of showers in the Old Pueblo starting early this evening. Snow levels bottom out around 5,000 feet with a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the Catalinas, Mt. Graham and White Mountains. 

Mount Lemmon may receive 2-4" snow tonight, while up to 6" snow is possible atop Mt. Graham and the White Mountains. 

Partly cloudy skies prevail tomorrow as high temps struggle to reach the mid 50s. Freezing temperatures are possible across portions of Metro Tucson tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning.

Models hint at another storm system late in the work week, bringing gusty winds and isolated showers on Friday.
