140 AM Radar loop shows light rain & snow showers across much of Yavapai & Coconino counties. Note the area of precip moving north out of Phoenix. Snow levels around 6000'. Roads are very slick this morning in the high county. Areas of fog around Show Low and Winslow. #azwx 

Time to start thinking about any preparations you may need to make for the weekend and early next week. Two back to back storms have the potential to bring widespread rain and snow to the area Saturday through Tuesday. #azwx
