STORMTRACKER 4 ALERT DAY — Weather Prediction Center has put our area at risk for excessive rainfall through late Monday. 

A strong storm system will continue to bring valley rain and mountain snow through late Monday. This system has the potential to dump a considerable amount of rain over the area. The latest models are giving us additional rain totals between 0.25″ and 1.00″ through early Tuesday, that’s why we were placed under a marginal risk of excessive rainfall. This means ponding water on roadways.

If thunderstorms develop they will stay north and East of Tucson. If we do see any severe weather it will most likely be damaging winds, possible hail, and occasional downpours.

For the mountains, a WINTER STORM WARNING has been issued until 9 p.m. Monday. 8 to 15 inches of snow is possible above 7,000′. Winds could gust as high as 50-60 mph. Travel could be very difficult to impossible due to blowing snow restricting visibility. 

It looks like a strong ridge of high pressure will warm up temperatures the middle of the week ahead of a weaker system next weekend. 

  • Tonight: Showers, breezy. Low: 46°
  • Monday: Showers, & isolated storms, & breezy. High: 59°
  • Monday night: Showers, breezy. Low: 44°
