Flagstaff is seeing the first snowfall of the season and that is creating very icy, dangerous road conditions in the high country.
According to the National Weather Service, this is ranked as the ninth latest first snowfall in Flagstaff, right in between Dec. 19, 1903 and Dec. 20, 1937.
They said the coldest temperatures are expected Friday morning with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
Arizona Snowbowl reported 2 inches of snow and it is still coming down. You can view Arizona Snowbowl's full snow report here.
The snow came at a perfect time, syncing up with the official start of the winter season and while it wasn't much, the snowfall was a welcome sight in Flagstaff.
However, it did create some issues for drivers along the icy roadways.
The Department of Public Safety said there have been several slide-offs and collisions on Interstate 40 due to the icy conditions. The Arizona Department of Transportation had traffic at a complete standstill in the early morning for a plow to make its way through the road to remove ice and salt the road.
The roadways have since reopened but traffic is still very slow for the icy conditions.
Arizona's Family's meteorologist April Warnecke said forecasters have been predicting a warmer and drier than average winter this year, thanks to the development of La Nina conditions. The colder than average sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific lead to weather pattern changes around the world. For the Desert Southwest, it often spells a winter like we're seeing so far.
Not much snow is expected between now and the new year, so anyone up north should enjoy the snow while it lasts!
