High winds and snow expected as storm system makes its way into Arizona

Jules Pappalardo

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch from Tuesday through Wednesday morning, mainly for Coconino, Navajo and Yavapai counties.

Sustained southwesterly winds of 30-40 miles per hour are expected, along with gusts up to 60 miles per hour at times.

The windiest period will be from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning, lining up with a winter storm system that begins moving into the region Tuesday morning.

Moderate to heavy rain and snow are expected to accompany this strong cold front causing areas of reduced visibility, blowing snow and dangerous travel.

Coconino County officials urge the public to sign up online for emergency weather and traffic alerts through the county’s website,
