So, About That Blizzard Warning...

Posted By on Tue, Feb 19, 2013 at 6:45 PM

Dont panic.
  • Don't panic.

If you have a phone and live in Tucson, you might have received a strange message around 6:30 tonight informing you of an impending blizzard warning. Of course, because you live in Tucson, blizzard warnings aren't exactly the sort of thing we expect to have to deal with around here, so perhaps this was a disconcerting turn of events.

So, is there a blizzard warning? Yes and no.

There is a blizzard warning in effect from 6 am to 11 pm on Wednesday, but it's for the areas of Mt. Graham, Mt. Lemmon, Madera Canyon, Summerhaven, the Chiricahua National Monument, Canelo Hills, and Bisbee. So, if you're in the greater Tucson area, you should be fine although it might still be somewhat unpleasant around these parts (there's a winter storm warning for above 3,000 feet, which would include more of the Tucson area).

No need to start hoarding canned food and gold. YET.

UPDATE: Yes, it's currently snowing, but we're still pretty far away from blizzard status. Follow breaking news of our demise on our #tucsonblizzard homepage.
