TUCSON – While Winter is officially three weeks away, Mother Nature is sending a Winter-like blast of rain, snow and cold air to southern Arizona.
A cold front will sweep through the State late tonight and into Friday morning bringing plenty of changes. Valley rain and mountain snow begins around 1 am and should finish up by midday Friday.
Rainfall amounts will be light – generally around 0.25″ or less in most spots while above 7000′ the precipitation will be in the form of snow.
While October was a wet month for Tucson, no rain has been picked up during the month of November.
Much cooler air will filter in for Friday and the weekend with highs only in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Rain is in the forecast for Sunday as well.
