Forecast Discussion:

Yesterday, Nogales saw some good snowfall amounts! Patagonia Lake received 3 inches, Amado recorded 1-2 inches, Nogales saw 1-4 inches, and Mount Hopkins Observatory got 18 inches! The locations at higher elevations saw greater snowfall accumulation but still good amounts across Santa Cruz county!

Today temperatures have been below freezing all morning so watch for any slick spots on roads if you're driving this morning. We should see temperatures reach high 50s for today and about 10 degree warmer than that for tomorrow. Today and Thursday are going to be rather quiet compared to what we've been seeing. Expect frosty morning conditions with cool temperatures and high humidity. Winds will be light and out of the east for today and mostly tomorrow as well. There will be a shift in wind direction from easterly to southerly by Thursday afternoon.

Another chance of showers could be seen Friday afternoon into evening as another storm system rolls in from the Pacific Ocean. Areas of higher elevation could see some snow but total amounts for both rainfall and snowfall will be low. This low-pressure system will be short lived and move out of the region for your weekend. Temperatures will be near 59 degrees on Saturday and 69 degrees on Sunday. This jump in temperatures will be due to a high-pressure system forming over the 4 corners region Saturday.

As for air quality, values should remain in the Good Air Quality Index (AQI) category for the forecast period. With the amount of precipitation seen in the past couple days, particulate levels should remain low. Elevated times of PM2.5 (smoke) could be seen due to fireplace and localized activity but these values shouldn't be of concern. Light winds will also help minimize PM10 (dust) values.

Have a great day!
