Snow coming late tonight and Wednesday

Prescott is likely to get its biggest snow of the season Wednesday when a strong storm system arrives from Alaska.

The National Weather Service is forecasting 100-percent chance of heavy snow Wednesday for Prescott and other mountainous areas in northern Arizona, meteorologist Megan Schwitzer said.

Prescott could get 3-6 inches of snow Wednesday.

"The cold core center is coming right over Yavapai and southern Coconino County," she said. "It's basically right over Prescott."

The Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for all of Yavapai County from midnight Tuesday to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Snow could drop as low as 3,000 feet in elevation.

The advisory forecasts 1-3 inches of snow at elevations of 3,000 to 5,000 feet; 3-6 inches at 5,000-6,000 feet; and 6-12 inches in areas higher than 6,000 feet.

The Prescott forecast is calling for 100 percent chance of rain and snow Tuesday night; 100 percent chance of heavy snow Wednesday; 30 percent chance of snow Wednesday night and Thursday; and 20 percent chance of snow Thursday night.

The high temperature could drop by 23 degrees in a day, from 54 today to 31 tomorrow.

Winds could gust to 30 mph today and 26 mph Wednesday.

Prescott's official Sundog measuring site on the northeast side of the city recorded 3.2 inches of snow in December and 1 inch in January.

The last time Prescott received more snow was St. Patrick's Day Weekend, when 10-21 inches fell at locations throughout the city.

Article comment by: Global Warming and We Can Do Nothing

Global warming has happened before man walked the earth and will continue after he's gone, like an Ice Age. So. what can we do about it, nothing. We still spew smoke in the air, pollute the waters, fish in the oceans and hunt til species are extinct. Anything else man can do to preserve this earth, oh yea, maybe fly to Mars and start all over again.

So, according to the global warming cult members, big snow storms, small snow storms, no snow storms, extreme cold, extreme hot, lots of rain, not much rain, glaciers melting in some parts of the globe but getting bigger in other parts...all of this is "proof" of their cultist theory.

And when, oh when, will they realize that most temperature gauges around the world are found in urban centers, where modern construction has caused those particular parts of the "globe" to have slightly higher temperature readings than the majority of the planet?

Oh, never mind. They don't actually care about the facts involved with this whole thing, even though they claim they've got all the "facts" and the "scientific consensus" on their side.

Hey all you Gobal warming bashers...just because it snows once in awhile (and we don't get snow storms around here like we used too) and we have record cold days here and there doesn't mean global warming is a myth...look into the research and data...the average temps are rising, glaciers are melting...what more evidence do you need?

Well, much ado about nothing. Is it just me, or have weather forecasters really gotten quite a bit worse at forecasting weather? How are you that wrong just a few hours out? The forecast for my area was 6 inches, looks like we will get maybe 1/2 inch, if that.

I wonder why Al Gore, the man who claims to have invented the internet, never spews forth on global warming during the heavy winter months?

Snow is a wonderful thing to have. We really need the moisture and snow is a great way to have it. I guess the Snow Dance that we have been doing is helping. Now let's keep those roads clear and safe for the public.
