First Snowfall Of The Season Possible In Flagstaff, But Winds Could Cause More Of A Problem This Weekend

The first snowfall of the season could happen in Flagstaff this weekend. The National Weather Service says a fall storm system will move into the area Saturday through Sunday, bringing strong winds, much cooler temperatures with rain and snow showers likely. Forecasters say snow levels could drop to about six-thousand feet with one-to-three inches of accumulation possible in the eastern portion of the state, with maybe a half-inch in Flagstaff. Winds could be the bigger issue for parts of Northern Arizona. A wind advisory will be in effect Saturday through Sunday morning. Forecasters expect winds 25-to-35 miles per hour with gusts up to 55 miles per hour. Areas under the advisory are the Greater Flagstaff area, Prescott, Williams, and areas at and around the Grand Canyon. Weather officials say with this first sign of winter, it’s a good time to get winter ready by gathering enough wood, getting winter tools ready and if you plan to travel, your winter driving kits that consists of a blanket, water and other supplies you need in case you get stuck when winter truly arrives. If you are traveling Interstate-17 or Interstate-40 this weekend, use caution, especially if you are in a high-profile vehicle and if you are traveling in general this weekend, pay attention to weather conditions.
