The Arizona Department of Transportation is reporting extreme winter driving conditions on northern Arizona’s roads and highways as a winter storm brought several inches of snow to the high country overnight.

Officials are urging motorists to delay travel if possible, and people who must drive should expect extended time on the road.

They also say drivers should slow down, leave extra room behind other vehicles and bring emergency supplies including a fully charged cell phone, warm clothing, blankets, food and water, medications and sand or kitty litter.

The storm is forecast to taper throughout Wednesday morning, but additional accumulations are expected Thursday and into New Year’s Eve Friday.

For the up-to-date state travel information, see az511.gov or call 511.
