Tucson bracing for “impressive” snowfall

January 1, 2019

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Tucson may get up to two inches of snow overnight in what the National Weather Service is very impressive snowfall.

The snow is expected to hit the first night of the year into Wednesday morning.

Southern Arizona should brace for even more snow. In Cochise County, forecasters expect anywhere between three to six inches of snow.

Up in the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Summerhaven area has already seen up to 11 inches of snow, resulting in the closure of Mount Lemmon.

Snow has also been falling pretty steadily in the northern part of the state, near Flagstaff. A picture posted by the Arizona Department of Transportation on Tuesday showed the entrance of the Grand Canyon covered in snow.
