STORMTRACKER 4 ALERT — We begin our StormTracker 4 Alert Day tomorrow as scattered showers, isolated storms and high-elevation snow impact Southeastern Arizona.

The morning commute is looking dry, but coverage will increase late tomorrow morning and showers will be on and off through the evening commute. This system will linger over the state through the weekend so isolated showers will be possible both Saturday and Sunday before we dry out!

The bulk of the rain and snow will fall tomorrow, but totals through the end of the weekend will range between 0.10 and 0.75 of an inch for the valleys.

For most of the mountain ranges in Southeastern Arizona, including the Catalinas, snow totals will range between 3 to 6 inches above 6,500 feet. However, snow amounts will be greatest in the White Mountains where a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 11 p.m. tonight until 5 a.m. Saturday. Up to 12″ will be possible above 6,500 feet in northern Graham and Greenlee County.

On top of that, it will be very windy with gusts around 45 mph, and blowing snow will impact travel.

The coldest day will be tomorrow with highs in the 50s and low 60s, but temperatures will rebound into the mid to upper 60s over the weekend.

After this system exits the area, we’re tracking a warmup through next work week with highs rebounding into the low 80s by next Thursday.

  • Tonight: Few showers otherwise mostly cloudy (30%). Low: 48°
  • Tomorrow: Windy with showers, isolated storms (60%). High: 63°
