A large winter storm is on the move into Arizona with high winds, heavy snow, rain and sharply colder temperatures.
A Winter Storm Warning is posted for parts of the High Country above 6500 feet, while a Winter Weather Advisory is posted for Flagstaff and areas around 6000 feet.
Snow will be heavy at times Monday into early Tuesday. Blowing and drifting snow could reduce visibility to near 0 at times. Here are some of the snow totals that we can expect:
Forest Lakes: 9-13"
Pine Top-Lakeside: 4-8"
Show Low: 2-5"
In addition to the snow, wind will play a major factor. Gusts up to 70 mph will be possible across northeast Arizona, while along the rim and in Flagstaff we can expect gusts up to 50 mph. This will create hazardous travel conditions with near white out conditions at times.
Across the Valley on President's Day, temperatures won't make it out of the low 60s and we'll see a few rain showers along with 30 mph gusts.
Tuesday and Wednesday is when the coldest air of the season arrives! Highs will be in the 50s along with lows in the 30s.
We don't make it back to the 70s again until late next weekend.
PRESIDENT'S DAY: 55/61 30% chance for showers and windy with gusts up to 30 mph
TUESDAY: 42/56 clearing skies and chilly
WEDNESDAY: 37/58 cold morning, partly cloudy
THURSDAY: 39/62 partly cloudy
FRIDAY: 41/64 partly cloudy, 10% shower
SATURDAY: 46/698 partly cloudy
