Storm bringing rain and snow to Arizona

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix area is expected to receive its first noticeable precipitation in more than two months, bringing a measure of relief to a region battered by drought.

The National Weather Service says widespread rain and some mountain snow is forecast across Arizona from Friday through Sunday as a storm that has already hit California moves eastward.

According to forecasters, rain through Sunday morning could total nearly 1 inch in Phoenix, 2-3 inches in Flagstaff and Payson and nearly 1 inch in Tucson.

Forecasters say total snow amounts at elevations above 6,000 feet will range from 2 to 6 inches with locally higher amounts possible.

The weather service says the risk of flooding is low.
