Response to AZ braces for driest winter in centuries


FLAGSTAFF - What seemed like an typical blustery winter Sunday in Flagstaff was really one for the record books.

On Jan. 15, Flagstaff set a record for latest, first measurable snowfall since 1898, the year when they started to record weather data.

The previous record was Jan. 7, 1930, and there were only four other years when the first snowfall came after Dec. 31.

Although the first snow has officially arrived, there is still no good news for Arizona Snowbowl.

"This system is finished, we won't see more snow from it. Our forecast predicts dry weather for the next week," said Ben Fogarty of the National Weather Service office in Bellemont.
