Traffic officials are urging drivers to prepare for icy and wet roads across the state as a storm is expected to bring significant rain and snow accumulation in the coming days.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says people should slow down on slippery roads and avoid traveling in snow. According to the National Weather Service, flooding is possible in washes and low-lying areas, and motorists should not attempt to cross running or standing water.
In the highlands, where a foot or more of snow is possible in some areas, travelers should be prepared with an emergency kit and keep up to date with conditions at az511.gov or by calling 511.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for portions of northern Arizona.
The recommendation is in effect from midnight tonight until 2 p.m. Tuesday for Greater Flagstaff, Williams and the Grand Canyon.
Snow is expected for elevations above 6,500 feet as of tonight, along with gusty winds of about 35 miles per hour.
Winter weather is expected Tuesday night and public safety officials are already urging drivers to avoid travel during this time if possible.
