Northern Arizona to have days of freezing temps

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The roads are icy, high winds are sending snow swirling, and it's cold.

Temperatures in parts of northern Arizona aren't expected to be above freezing until next week.

The National Weather Service says a cold front moving into the high country Wednesday comes with wind gusts of up to 50 mph, potentially affecting traffic on Interstate 40 from Winslow to the New Mexico state line.

Up to five inches of snow are expected at elevations above 6,000 feet. The National Weather Service reported about four inches near the Navajo Nation capital of Window Rock by Wednesday afternoon.

A second snow storm this weekend will keep temperatures well below normal through Tuesday.

Officials in Prescott say the city's street maintenance division is standing by to respond to the snow and ice.
