Kaibab Plateau, Marble and Glen Canyons, Grand Canyon Country, and Coconino Plateau and includes the cities of Fredonia, Page, Grand Canyon Village, Supai, Prescott, and Flagstaff.

The wind advisory remains in effect from 9 A.M. this morning to 9 P.M (MST) this evening.

Winds will increase by mid morning becoming southwest 25 to 35 mph with gusts 45 to 50 mph by the afternoon. Winds will begin to subside in the evening. Some blowing dust is possible along highway 89 near Page. Winds this strong can make driving difficult…especially for high profile vehicles. Consider securing loose belongings on your property.

A strong low pressure system is moving into the area bringing the gusty winds, showers, and the possibility of a few strong thunderstorms with the cold front passage tonight into early Thursday morning.

Snow showers are expected down to 6500 feet with up to an inch of accumulation…and up to a few inches possible above 7000 feet. High elevation residents above 6500-7000 feet should expect snow to affect the Thursday morning commute. The coldest temperatures yet this season are expected on Thursday with clearing conditions moving in from west to east by late Thursday afternoon.
