Map: Here's how much snow MA could get on Saturday

Bookend Storms Dumping Snow Over Northern Arizona Mountains

Thursday is expected to come in as the second of three unseasonably mild days, but a look to the weekend shows a cool-down, as well as potential for some snow, forecasters said.

The second winter storm front of the week is poised to move through northern Arizona tonight and Thursday, bringing rain and up to several inches of snow above 7,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.

However, the major computer models have been making wild swings during the past 24 hours, some of them hinting at a large snowfall potential in one model run, then minor accumulations in later model runs. More snow will be blown onto the streets and visibilities will be significantly decreased as well. The often-problematic stretch of Montana Highway 3 from Harlowton to Eddie's Corner was closed to traffic Wednesday night before reopening Thursday morning.

Before 10 a.m. on Valentine's Day another 1 to 2 inches is possible.

Not only will we receive more snow, temperatures will drop once again to below zero Saturday night and not warming up much at all for Sunday and the start of the week. They are among the tools used by meteorologists to analyze storm systems, weather patterns and atmospheric conditions.

Keep in mind, computer models are not official forecasts.
