Winter weather recommendation for northeast Arizona on Tuesday

Winter weather is expected in northern and eastern Arizona Monday evening through Tuesday, with a fast-moving storm arriving on Monday evening and bringing snow showers through Tuesday afternoon, and snow could even be seen in northeast Arizona until Wednesday.

A briefing from the National Weather Service in Flagstaff said that most of the impact will land east of the Interstate 17 corridor in northern Arizona, particularly Apache County.

A forecaster for the National Weather Service in Flagstaff said there will be a winter weather report for parts of northern and eastern Arizona on Tuesday, stretching from Kayenta to Whiteriver.

Winter weather warnings were issued for Monday evening and Tuesday warning of 2 to 5 inches of snow and winds of 30 to 40 mph for the White Mountains, including Show Low and Greer, the Chuska Mountains, and many areas of the Navajo Nation, including Kayenta. Chinle and Window Rock, which could see up to 6 inches of snow. Buffalo Pass could see 6 to 10 inches of snow.

Gusts of 40 to 45 mph are possible on Monday nights in headwind locations from terrain features such as Springerville, Doney Park, and Cameron. Wind gusts will appear in parts of Apache County through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

According to the weather service, dangerous driving conditions are expected on Tuesday morning.

1 to 2 inches of snow is expected in Flagstaff.

Temperatures are expected to be below average for most of the week, and morning lows on Wednesday and Thursday will be below freezing in much of the region, according to the weather service.

This is the result of an “unprecedented” winter storm that recently left millions in Texas without power and, according to USA TODAY, left much of the American Central and South with ice and heavy snowfall. The storm has exposed over 150 million Americans to an extreme weather warning and extends for nearly 2,000 miles between north Maine and south Texas.

Phoenix Metro forecasts predict a cloudy Tuesday morning that will turn into a sunny afternoon with windy gusts of 10 to 15 miles per hour and a high temperature of 68 degrees.
