Synopsis A major winter storm will bring widespread heavy snow
and dangerous travel conditions to northern arizona from late
tonight through Friday afternoon. Quieter weather returns for the
weekend with continued below normal temperatures.
Discussion A very cold morning across northern arizona under
clear skies and light winds. The coldest reading as of 4am is the
grand canyon airport sitting at -9 degrees. The daytime hours
will be mainly quiet weather-wise aside from breezy southwest
winds developing through the day. Afternoon high temperatures will
remain well below normal with the higher terrain remaining below
Our attention then turns to a major winter storm which will begin
late tonight and continue through Friday afternoon. The winter
storm watch has been upgraded to a winter storm warning across all
of northern arizona. The system is seen on satellite this morning
beginning to take shape across the pacific northwest. The cold
upper level low will dive south into nevada and southern
california by late tonight before slowly moving east across
arizona later Thursday into Friday. The slow movement of the
system will put northern arizona in large-scale ascent for an
extended period of time. Snow will develop across northwest
coconino county by early this evening, progressing south and east
through the remainder of the night. Widespread moderate to heavy
precipitation is expected from early Thursday morning throughout
the day. Latest model guidance remains consistent with the
heaviest precipitation falling along the mogollon rim from
flagstaff southeast to the white mountains. Some of the guidance
has reduced amounts slightly across western coconino county and
this has been reflected in this mornings forecast. However,
several inches of snow are still expected in this area. General
snowfall amounts of 1-2 feet across the higher terrain of the
mogollon rim, white mountains, and higher mountains of yavapai
county still are on track, with locally higher amounts of around 3
feet along the crest of the eastern mogollon rim near forest
lakes. A cold airmass will also allow areas between 3,000-5,000
feet to receive significant accumulations with this system. Travel
will be extremely hazardous during this timeframe and is not
recommended. This is expected to go down as the most impactful|
winter storm we have seen so far this season.
The trough will cross the region on Friday with snow showers
diminishing from west to east through the afternoon hours. Snow
will linger into Friday evening across the white mountains.
Generally fair weather returns for the weekend and early next
week. Daytime temperatures over the weekend will remain below
normal, with cold nighttime lows due to the fresh snow cover and
light winds. A gradual warming trend is expected early next week.
Aviation For the 12z package... ExpectVFR conditions with breezy
southerly winds through midday today. By this afternoon, snow
showers will begin in northwest arizona, before spreading to the
southeast during the evening and overnight hours. Expect
deteriorating conditions, with MVFR ifr ceilings and visibilities
likely across the majority of northern arizona. Aviation discussion
not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather For today, expect dry weather and breezy southerly
winds through this afternoon. Then, a strong winter storm system
will bring widespread, heavy snow from tonight into Friday. In
addition, southwest winds from 15 to 25 mph with gusts 35 to 45 mph
are possible Thursday afternoon.
Friday through Sunday... Widespread heavy snow will continue Friday
morning before gradually tapering off to showers in the afternoon.
Dry and cold weather is forecast on Saturday and Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
