Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Flagstaff AZ
858 PM MST Sat Mar 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A few light showers will continue this evening across
far northeastern Arizona. Fair weather will return Sunday, then
another low pressure system will arrive Monday into Tuesday. A
third low should cross the state late in the week and into next
weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Showers have decreased this evening as a trough shifts eastward.

Weak ridging moves across the state on Sunday with clearing
weather and warmer temperatures.

An active weather pattern continues next week with another system
impacting the area Monday and Tuesday. Models continue to
struggle with the exact strength and timing of this system, but
the latest guidance suggest snow levels may fall down to 6000
feet along the Utah border and around 7000 feet from Bagdad to
Alpine on the backside of this system Tuesday morning. A brief
break in the wetter weather appears likely mid next week, but
models indicate another system could drop south and impact
northern Arizona on Friday and Saturday.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 06Z Package...Clearing skies are developing
this evening as a trough is pushing east of Arizona. A few light
lingering showers are possible across extreme NE Arizona through
about 09Z. Generally light west-southwesterly breezes will return
Sunday afternoon. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF
amendments.

.FGZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...NONE.
