PINETOP-LAKESIDE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The winter storm that has hit the Grand Canyon State has forced at least two northern Arizona school districts to delay their Tuesday start.

The Blue Ridge and Flagstaff unified school districts will operate on a 2-hour delay schedule on Tuesday.

Blue Ridge said buses will also be on a 2-hour delay and Flagstaff said regular bus stops will be used today.

Morning preschool and morning kindergarten are canceled, Blue Ridge said.

The Blue Ridge district covers the Pinetop-Lakeside.

The National Weather Service said the area could maybe see a couple of inches of snow overnight.

While that part of Arizona hasn't seen a lot of snow, if any, winds maxed out at 54 miles per hour on Monday afternoon.
