What a heavy wet mess, again. That’s twice in a week that a slush storm has wandered through Northern Arizona. More, a lot more, is on the way for Monday. See the Winter Storm Advisory from the National Weather Service in Flagstaff below.
I’m not sure about the temperature drop they are predicting. We may end up with another day like today. As always, a degree or two can make a huge difference between snow and rain amounts. Hope you have some nice boots!
