How low will snow levels go this week?

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - A cold storm system is set to strike over the next 48 hours.

This afternoon marks the calm before the cold front, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Highs today peak in the low 70s, running a few degrees above average. Cloud cover begins to increase overnight as lows bottom out in the low 40s.

Tuesday features gusty southwest winds around 15-25 MPH. The cold front enters the western deserts late tomorrow afternoon, leading to scattered showers for places like Ajo and Sells. Metro Tucson stands a 60% chance of showers starting late Tuesday night & lingering through Wednesday morning.

Snow levels by Wednesday morning crash as low as 3,500 feet, meaning snowflakes are possible for places like Vail, SaddleBrooke and Benson. 1-2" snow is possible for locales around 4,000 feet, including Oracle, Sierra Vista and Patagonia. Mount Lemmon is in line for 4-7" snow through Wednesday morning.

Up to 0.30" rain is possible for valley floors.

Highs behind the front only reach the mid 50s Wednesday, followed by lows in the low to mid 30s. A strong warming trend starts Thursday.
