Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Flagstaff AZ
925 PM MST Wed Feb 21 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A dry and windy day will develop Thursday, as another
cold front approaches. This system will bring light accumulating
snowfall to northwest Arizona Thursday night and across our area
Friday. Dry and warmer weather is on tap from Saturday through
Monday. Another winter system may arrive as early as Tuesday.

&&

.UPDATE...Removed snow chances from the evening forecast in the
western zones as the 00z sounding shows a rather dry boundary
layer. Dewpoints are in the single digits along and west of a line
from Payson to Winslow to Kayenta. East of said line, kept snow
chances in the overnight forecast where the boundary layer has a
little more moisture to work with.

Otherwise, the remaining weather elements are in good shape. The
updated forecast has been sent.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 06z package...local CIGS BKN010 and -SN will
continue over the higher terrain generally along and east of a
line from KSOW-KGUP through 10Z. Otherwise, clouds will continue
to decrease from west to east tonight, with VFR conditions
expected most areas by 14Z. Southwest winds will increase to 15-20
kts gusting to 30 kt after 18z Thursday. Aviation discussion not
updated for amendments.

&&

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