Two rollover crashes were reported there around 10 a.m.The Arizona Department of Transportation sent out many of its 192 snow plows to clear Flagstaff roadways.Snow is also prevalent on Interstate 40 from Bellemont to just east of Flagstaff.A spokesman from the Weather Service in Flagstaff said temperatures will likely fall throughout the day as snowfall becomes more intense. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30s and might not climb above freezing through the weekend.Flagstaff snow is expected to subside on Thursday, but the city could see rain in the days leading up to the weekend where the chance for more snow is at 50 percent.In the East Valley, rain already had fallen and was expected to continue through the afternoon. The rest of Valley was not expected to see much rainfall.Temperatures Valleywide could drop to the mid-30s, and below freezing in some higher elevation areas. Daytime highs are expected to drop to the mid-50s.The cold temperatures were left behind in the wake of a cold front that swept through the state from regions in California and Nevada.The front passed through Phoenix at about 9 a.m. and is expected to continue east.Much of the Valley should see temperatures in the mid-30s Wednesday and Thursday nights while Casa Grande, Gila Bend and Wickenburg could see sub-freezing temperatures.The Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for Thursday evening to Friday morning for Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County, cautioning residents against sub-freezing temperatures that can kill sensitive vegetation, put exposed livestock and pets at risk and expose the homeless to increased risk of hypothermia.Moon Valley Nurseries in Phoenix moved many of its seasonal flowers, citrus plants, ficus trees and other plants susceptible to cold temperatures into its greenhouses in preparation for the week’s freezing temperatures, according to Randy Howell, a design sales representative for the nursery.Howell recommends plant owners take similar precautions in keeping vegetation warm and to also cover plants that can’t be taken indoors with a frost cloth or sheets.
