An upper-level trough will move across Arizona today through tomorrow and direct relatively warm, moist low-level wind across the state. Temperatures will be too warm for snow accumulation in Prescott, with snow levels rising up to 7,000’ tonight. However, we should see between 1” and 1.5” of rain accumulation between 10 am today and noon tomorrow. With soils already somewhat saturated around northern Arizona, we should see some rises in local creeks, but no flooding is expected.
Skies will become mostly sunny and becoming warmer than normal for the rest of the week and the weekend.
