We MIGHT Get Snow This Week!!! Featured

There’s a possibility for snow this weekend!

Big Idea

  • To start the week out, we’ll have some nice afternoon weather. 
  • Wednesday afternoon will usher in the storm
  • Thursday, cloudy, breezy, colder, rain maybe snow. Highs only in the upper 40’s
  • Friday - Sunday, respite from that brief winter storm
  •

It’s unusual to get snow in the first week of November, but what about this year’s weather has been normal?


Forecast Summary:

Monday – Tuesday: Increasing high clouds and breezes. Lows in the mid to upper 30s. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy and windy, with a chance of light rain showers in the afternoon to evening. Low in the lower 40s. High near 60. South to southwest wind 15-25 mph, gusting to 35 mph. 

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and colder, with a good chance of rain showers, changing to snow showers in the late morning to afternoon, tapering off in the evening. Perhaps 0.5” - 2” of wet snow accumulation. Low in the mid 30s, high in the upper 40s. West wind 10-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.

Friday – Sunday: Mostly sunny, and gradually warmer. Lows warming from the mid 20s on Friday morning to the lower 30s by Sunday. Highs warming from the lower 50s Friday to lower 60s on Sunday.

Forecast Discussion:

A deep upper-level trough will dig southward along the West Coast the next couple of days and then move across Arizona on Wednesday evening to Thursday. The impacts will be windy and showery weather on Wednesday afternoon, much cooler and breezy weather on Thursday with a chance of rain showers changing to snow showers. Perhaps 0.5” - 2” of wet snow may accumulate on Thursday between late morning to evening, with possibly slushy roads for the afternoon commute. Some icy spots may be present on the roads Friday morning. 

It is rare for Prescott’s first snow to occur during the first week of November, but it could indeed be the case this week.
