PHOENIX — A potent storm is moving into Arizona!

With impacts expected to road travel across Arizona and outdoor activities for Easter and Monday, both days will be ABC15 Weather Action Days. Take action now to get ready for this storm and have backup plans in place in case outdoor events get rained out.

Rain and snow will start to fall in parts of our state tonight and continue throughout Easter Sunday and into Monday.

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect now through Sunday night for parts of the high country, the white mountains and the Mogollon Rim

Winter Storm Warnings also take effect tonight through Sunday morning for Flagstaff.

Travel will be very difficult and areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility, especially early Easter Sunday morning.

Rain and snow showers will continue into Monday morning and we’ll see an increased chance for thunderstorms Monday afternoon and evening.

Early estimates now show the potential of a half an inch to an inch of rain in the Valley.

Up north, the snow level will fall to around 5,500 feet with as much as eight to twelve inches of snow possible for some spots along the Mogollon Rim, including in Flagstaff.

Temperatures will plummet as this storm arrives. Valley highs will fall into the mid 60s on Easter, putting us 15 to 20 degrees below normal for this time of year!

This storm will clear out of Arizona by Tuesday with Valley temperatures back in the low 80s by Wednesday.
