TUCSON - Valley rain and mountain snow is underway statewide. A low pressure center near the northern Baja coast fuels widespread showers over the next 48 hours, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Since midnight, much of Metro Tucson has seen a quarter inch of rain. Upper air data indicates a few thunderstorms are possible today, capable of producing small hail. Daytime highs the next few days struggle to reach the low 60's in Tucson. Snow levels this morning are around 9,000 feet, eventually dropping to 7,000 feet overnight. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for Mt. Lemmon, Mt. Graham and the White Mountains through Saturday afternoon. Snow totals may reach a foot atop Mt. Lemmon, with several feet in the higher terrain of Graham and Greenlee Counties. Showers/mountain snow tapers off Saturday night, with only a few showers possible east of Tucson for Super Bowl Sunday. Rainfall totals for the valley floors range from 0.75-1.50". Isolated higher amounts of 2" may occur, especially in the higher elevations. Watch Jeff for a complete look at your News 4 Tucson forecast today at noon.
