Parts of northern and eastern Arizona are getting a late taste of winter weather with snow and rain making for slick roadways Tuesday morning.

There's snow on the ground at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and along sections of Interstate 40 near Ash Fork, while other routes in the region are wet from rain or snow that's already melted.
A winter weather advisory urges drivers to be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility.
The National Weather Service says snow is likely at elevations of 6,000 to 6,500 feet or higher at the Grand Canyon, along the Mogollon Rim and in the white Mountains.
Forecast amounts of snow include up to 1 inch in Flagstaff and Show Low and up to 2 inches in Williams.
