An approaching winter storm will begin to deliver rain and mountain snow to the area during the overnight hours. While the bulk of the storm will not hit until after daybreak Saturday, many of the storms effects will begin to be felt before that time. Winds will remain brisk overnight before getting even stromger tomorrow.
We will see very strong winds Saturday afternoon. Wind spreed of 35 to 45 mph with wind gusts to 60+ mph will be possible. Cool season wind storms can lead to power outages, isolated property damage, trucks blown of the road and near blizzard conditions in area mountains.
An approaching upper level storm system will bring heavy snow to area mountains tonight through Saturday. A foot or more of snow is possible above 6,000 feet in the Gila Region and Black Mountain and in the Sacramento Mountains. We will see 2 to 4 inches of snow between 5,000 and 6,000 feet on Saturday.
A healthy Pacific storm system will be moving across the area with strong winds and numerous showers. Above 6000 feet in the Gila region and Sacramento Mountains there will be heavy snowfall, with strong winds resulting in blowing snow and low visibilities. Colder air behind a cold front will be more dense, giving the strong winds more of an impact and better potential to result in damage just about anywhere in the area.
