  • The left over moisture and cold air in place will bring snow showers to the higher elevations. A couple inches of snow possible overnight for Mount Lemmon and all sky islands east of Tucson.
  • Snow levels slowly start to drop to about 6500' by midnight. Snow & icy conditions are likely on the Catalina Highway.
