The National Weather Service(NWS) forecasts 3-6 inches for the Flagstaff area between today and tomorrow. This is with fairly aggressive winds. The North American Mesoscale model has only a very small area of quarter to half-inch water precipitation,which would be 3-6 inches of snow, in Northern Arizona. That with the winds have me thinking that we won’t get that much. Or, maybe we get that much snow, but the wind carries it away.

Here is the NWS Weather Story and Winter Weather Advisory from this morning.
