Recap: Scattered showers in the Valley, snow up north

The second round of storms that previously battered the west coast is moving into Arizona on Monday, with more coming Tuesday.

PHOENIX — A Winter Storm Warning remains posted for elevations above 5,500 feet until 11:00 p.m. Tuesday. Elevations above 7,500 feet can expect an additional ten to eighteen inches of snow accumulation through Tuesday. 

Colder air is in place, so the snow levels will be down to around 4,000 feet by Tuesday morning; this is where a few more inches of snow will fall. 

As of Monday evening, several valley locations have already exceeded one-half inch of rain. Look for an additional half an inch to one and a half inches of rain through Tuesday night. Locally higher amounts will be found in the high terrain north and east of the Phoenix valley. 

With more rain and snow, it's no surprise that below-average temperatures will continue. Tuesday, low desert highs will only muster the upper 50s to around 60 degrees, and the high country will reach the 30s and 40s. The Flagstaff area can expect Tuesday highs in the lower 30s.
