FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Northern Arizona got an early taste of wintry weather with snow piling up and roads becoming slippery.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says stretches of Interstates 17 and 40 were down to zero visibility Wednesday. Heavy rain dropped in the lower elevations, including along I-17 in central Arizona and Interstate 10 in southeastern Arizona.

The heaviest snowfall was expected Wednesday afternoon and evening. The highest elevations could get up to a foot of snow or more before the storm moves out of the region Thursday.

Flagstaff broke a 90-year record for Nov. 4 with more than 5 inches of snow. The storm also delayed the start of school.

Roads are expected to ice up after sundown, creating more slick conditions from Pine and Strawberry to Flagstaff and north of the Grand Canyon.
