Flagstaff saw its first snow storm this season on Wednesday. Payson, Prescott and Black Canyon City also experienced a cold front as rain continued to fall on the Phoenix area.

The storm in northern Arizona brought freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall.

Mark Stubblefield, a meteorologist in Flagstaff, said populated areas "could see anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of snow above the 6,500-foot level.” 

Stubblefield says temperatures will remain below 40 degrees. Rain and snow activity is expected to taper off later Thursday.
