Parts of northern Arizona, above 5,000 feet, could receive 12 to 24 inches of snow Monday night and into Tuesday morning. With overnight and morning low temperatures expected to cause a hard freeze, the Arizona Department of Public Safety reports highways could be slippery and advises avoiding travel if possible.
Vehicles equipped with snow tires or vehicles with all-wheel or four-wheel drive typically perform the best in these types of highway conditions. The highway patrol will be shifting resources to make as many patrolmen available as possible to respond to emergency calls during this period.
To check on the latest winter road conditions, call 5-1-1 or view this information on ADOT's website at www. AZ511.gov. Dial 9-1-1 only for emergency situations.
