Flagstaff can expect between 4 and 7 inches of snow on the ground by late today, according to the National Weather Service in Bellemont.

Several northern Arizona locations reported wind gusts of more than 50 mph Friday.

Higher snowfall totals of up to a foot are forecast for Happy Jack/Blue Ridge and north of the Grand Canyon.

Snowfall amounts at 11,000 feet on the San Francisco Peaks will top 2 feet, with wind chills as low as 26 degrees below zero this afternoon amid wind gusts as high as 34 mph.

Flagstaff Nordic Center, which is at 8,000 feet and has been closed this week, said Friday night it plans to reopen this morning with groomed trails.

The Wing Mountain tubing area, at 7,200 feet, has also been closed and did not have any updated information on its website or voicemail recording as of Friday night.

Intermittent snow showers will continue through Sunday and into Monday as another cold storm system moves through the region. Several more inches of snow are possible, according to the Weather Service, although forecast models were uncertain as of Friday night.

Skies will clear Tuesday, with slowly moderating temperatures through the rest of the week.
