PHOENIX – It’s beginning to look like winter in some parts of Arizona after a storm dropped snow north and south of metro Phoenix by early Monday morning.

Weather in the Valley was less active – a drop in temperatures, cloud coverings and sprinkles was the worst of it – but Flagstaff got enough snow to delay the start of school at safe learning centers for two hours.

The National Weather Service’s Flagstaff bureau reported at 5 a.m. between 2 to 3 inches had come down and more was expected all morning.

The storm moved in Sunday, greeting Forest Lakes in Coconino County with quite a lot of snow and Strawberry, about 100 miles northeast of the Valley, caught 2.5 inches overnight.

Officials at the Grand Canyon reported 4 inches hit, adding roads and footpaths were icy.

In southern Arizona, more than an inch fell at Mount Lemmon near Tucson.

The Valley’s forecast is sweater-grabbing, for sure, to a smaller extent.

Monday’s high was expected to reach 63 degrees with an overnight low of 44 degrees.

Temperatures will warm up each day, likely to top out at 73 degrees Thursday and Friday.

We want to hear from you.
