PHOENIX -- A cold front moving through Arizona is bringing snow to the mountains and scattered showers to the deserts. Lots of clouds and cooler temperatures are associated with the storm system as well. Most of the precipitation will be winding down tonight, and Phoenix is looking at a Tuesday morning with lows in the 40s.

So far the storm has dropped up to 24 inches of snow at the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff. Flagstaff itself is reporting between four and eight inches of snow as of the early afternoon hours. Bellemont, west of Flagstaff, has reported 10 inches of snow. Kayenta got six inches and Page got up to six inches of wet snow.

In the Valley, most locations reporting measurable rain are in the northeast part of metro Phoenix. Troon North received .12 of an inch of rain. As of 2 p.m. Monday, most of the Valley did not receive any rain.

There will be a slight chance for showers around the Valley overnight, and then Tuesday we’ll see lots of sunshine and begin a slow warming trend for the rest of the week.  Next weekend looks like we may see another round of rain and snow.
