Snow possible Thursday-Friday
The Daily Courier

Prescott is highly likely to get its first precipitation Thursday in more than a month's time, since the National Weather Service is forecasting a 90-percent chance of precipitation.

But whether the city gets any snow is still up in the air. As is often the case, Prescott's mile-high elevation is right at the freezing level.

"It's still pretty uncertain," said Justin Johndrow at the Weather Service office in Flagstaff Tuesday evening, when the storm was still over the Pacific Ocean. "It's just taking shape right now and the details will be clearer Wednesday."

The Weather Service is advising people to keep checking its website at weather.gov/Flagstaff.

Earlier forecasts anticipated precipitation in the form of several inches of snow Thursday night in Prescott. But by Tuesday afternoon, meteorologists at the Weather Service were forecasting rain Thursday night and a chance for less than an inch of snow Friday.

However in the higher-elevation areas of the Prescott Basin, as much as a half-foot of snow could fall.

Travel along Interstate 40 could be treacherous as the Weather Service is forecasting 7-13 inches of snow in Williams and 5-11 inches in Flagstaff.

Winds could gust to 24 mph in Prescott today as the storm moves in.

The chance for some form of precipitation in Prescott is 30 percent Thursday, 90 percent Thursday night, 50 percent Friday and 20 percent Friday night.

The forecast high is 53 degrees Thursday, but the high temperature will drop 10 degrees to 43 Friday, 46 Saturday and 49 Sunday. It might be Tuesday before the temperatures break 50 degrees again.

Prescott hasn't seen any precipitation since Nov. 10, and that system produced the only precipitation that month.
