Well, today it is winter. Here's a pic from my backyard:
and it's already snowed 7" in Parks which is a bit west of Flag.
The NWS upped the forecast for today:

FLAGSTAFF 1 TO 2 INCHES WILLIAMS 1 TO 2 INCHES

The storm will be pushing outa here tomorrow (Sat) and I bet the day will actually end up being pretty decent. Sloppy in the morning. As for the trails, Dry Lake Hills/Elden/SF Peaks dry out pretty good and will probably be stellar on Sunday with a little sunshine. Near the Expo, however, is death mud. The predicted hi for Sunday in Flag is 58F. Sedona will be prime.
