Arizona Snowbowl gets 40 inches of new snowfall

Posted: Updated:

A 3-day storm that dropped a record amount of rain in Phoenix and Tucson brought 40 inches of snow to the Arizona Snowbowl in northern Arizona.

Officials at the ski resort outside Flagstaff reported 11 inches of snowfall over a 24-hour period -- and even more snowflakes fell on Monday night.
 
Major roadways in northern Arizona remained open Monday but were reported to be slick and slushy.
 
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service issued two flood warnings for northeastern Maricopa County and Gila County.
 
In Gila County, the Tonto Basin crossings remain closed due to high water. About three to five feet of water is flowing over the crossings and authorities expect the crossings to remain closed for the next five to seven days.

The Sunrise Park Resort near Greer received 6 inches of snow, Window Rock on the Navajo Nation got 3 inches of snow, and Heber-Overgaard had a half an inch of snow as of Monday afternoon.

The 1.18 inches of rain that fell Saturday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and 0.71 inches at Tucson International Airport both broke previous records set on that date in 1985.

FOX 10's Jill Monier reports from Flagstaff.
