What to expect from our next winter storm

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

As the powerful winter storm rolls in from the Pacific, our weather deteriorates hour-by-hour today. Rain becomes widespread by the afternoon commute. The wind will howl from 20-35mph out of the west, then northwest as cold air takes over tonight. 

Tonight, showers will continue, but with less intensity than Friday afternoon. Snow levels drop to 3500' with accumulations above 4000' in some areas. The tops of the Sky Islands may pick up a foot or more of snow. 

On Saturday, a chilly but quiet start to the day with sun peaking through breaks in the clouds. In the afternoon, a few showers may pop back into the sky but the coverage will be spotty. It'll be cool with highs only the 50s for the Tucson metropolitan area.
