KINGMAN – The next weather system bringing cold temperatures and wind gusts hit the region Thursday and was expected to continue into today, the National Weather Service reported.

There’s a chance of rain and snow in some areas of Mohave County, with snowfall estimates up to 4 inches at elevations of 4,000 feet to 5,000 feet, and up to 6 inches of snow at 5,500 feet and above.

However, the National Weather Service’s confidence level on those estimates was “moderate.”

The highest chance for preliminary snowfall estimates is Thursday night into Friday morning.

Wind gusts are projected at 35 mph to 45 mph in Mohave County, decreasing by Friday evening.

Also, beware of hazardous travel conditions due to slick, snow-covered roads. This includes Interstate 40 from Kingman east toward Flagstaff, as well as U.S. Highway 93 through Lincoln County, Nevada.

Friday’s high was expected to be 46, with an overnight low of 23.
