Snow showers move in with gusts of strong wind tonight

The Mall near sunset.

Friday's rain system did not accumulate much rain. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid-40s to mid-50s with lows in the 30s at night. It's a one-day wintry chill as temperatures return to above normal tomorrow. Expect the rain as we ring in the New Year closer to midnight. They won't entirely disappear, but it'll be less of an issue with time. Winds will be up to 10 to 15mph out of the North today.

View the current weather conditions at The Washington Post. We'll keep an eye on that but it doesn't appear to be a major problem for us for the New Year's Eve festivities.

Some Snow Showers Expected for Last Day of 2016

Sunday: Ringing in 2017 with seasonably chilly temperatures. We will still be dealing with some gusty breezes, though. South wind 5 to 8 miles per hour. A change occurs through the overnight hours as we watch the slow increase in cloud cover. It's quite agreeable overall for any New Year festivities. Winds are lighter as well. Valley areas are starting out in the low to mid 30's early this morning, and in the teens to 20's in most mountain areas. Get those resolutions off to a good start!

The first of two New Year's storm punches arrived in the Flagstaff region Friday night, bringing rain and light snow down to 6,500 feet by Saturday morning.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers. Any breaks in the clouds are probably limited, as highs rise to near 50.
