FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a powerful cold front is about to sock much of northern and east-central Arizona with very strong winds and snow Sunday and Monday.

Forecasts call for wind gusts up to 50 mph (80 kph) developing Sunday afternoon and continuing Sunday night, with stronger winds and gusts up to 60 mph (97 kph) Monday.

The weather service says the wind and snow will create difficult driving conditions, especially for high-profile vehicles.

Predicted 72-hour snowfall amounts include up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) in downtown Flagstaff, up to 3 inches (7 centimeters) at Window Rock and up 4 inches (10 centimeters) at Show Low inches.

Snowfall is expected to decrease Monday night. Very cold temperatures will follow on Tuesday.
