Winter weather has left northern Arizona, at least for a few days.
The winter weather has left northern Arizona and it won’t be coming back, at least not early this week. This storm is considered to be the largest in more than 30 years in Prescott. Dry weather and warm temperatures are expected today through Wednesday. A passing weather disturbance could bring gusty winds, cooler temperatures and showers Thursday into this weekend. Meteorologist Ken Daniel explains clear skies don’t mean a warming trend.
