PHOENIX – It’s been a rainy week across Arizona as a series of winter storms pass through.
Now, another winter storm is moving forward and more rain and snow will fall tonight and tomorrow.
Wet weather will again impact travel and outdoor activities, including the Phoenix Open. So, we’re back again ABC15 weather working mode on saturday.
Take action and adjust your plans to accommodate this inclement weather. In highland counties, make sure your vehicle has an emergency kit and is prepared for winter driving conditions. Be careful of smooth, snow-covered roads and areas where there is snow and low visibility.
Much of the Valley has already fallen a half-inch to an inch of rain this week, and another tenth to a quarter-inch of rain is possible tonight and Saturday.
a Flood warning It has been issued for Tonto Creek through Monday as a result of heavy rain and runoff east of the valley.
While the risk of widespread flooding has diminished, water accumulation on roads and flooding in low-lying areas is still possible, so be weather aware. Remember, “turn around, don’t drown” and avoid driving through flooded or flooded roads.
Snow levels will drop to between 3,500 and 4,000 feet on Saturday.
Places like Flagstaff have already picked up more than three feet of snow, and we could add another inch or two of snow to that through Saturday.
