Posted at 8:56 AM, Nov 26, 2019

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Forecasters warn of "difficult to impossible travel conditions" across much of northern Arizona later this week as a storm dumps an expected 2 feet (0.6 meters) of snow on Flagstaff and Williams along Interstate 40.

Elsewhere in Arizona's high country, approximately 1 foot (0.3 meter) of snow is expected in Prescott and Show Low, and winter storm watches or warnings will be in effect from Kingman on the west to Show Low on the east.

The National Weather Service' office in Flagstaff says travel conditions will start to deteriorate Wednesday night, followed by the heaviest snowfall Thursday through Friday morning.

The weather service said snow showers will become scattered late Friday but that traffic conditions will remain dangerous until Saturday.
