Arizona cities buried in rare snowstorm

| No Comments

A surprising late-winter snowstorm will leaves parts of Arizona buried Monday, while travel is halted and schools are closed, CNN said.

A day before spring officially starts, most of the country will continue to enjoy warm temperatures, but The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the mountains of central and eastern Arizona early Monday.

The city of Flagstaff continues to dig out of the 10 to 14 inches of snow that fell this weekend, which caused school closings in the city for Monday.

Heavy snow and powerful winds forced authorities to close 180 miles of Interstate 40 in northern Arizona on Sunday until further notice.

In eastern parts of the country, temperatures are well above average from Texas and the Midwest all the way to the East Coast.
