Updated Storm Impact Briefing - National Weather Service Flagstaff

An updated briefing for the winter storm Thursday - Saturday.  Attached is the graphic of the storm total snowfall expected Thursday -  Saturday, and the detailed forecast Snow Table, breaking down the snow amounts expected through Saturday morning.  We will be scheduling a conf call / webinar with you this afternoon to discuss the impacts of this event - keep your eyes out for a follow-up email with the details of the webinar. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

In summary, two storms are on the way that will produce high-impact winter weather over northern Arizona from Thursday through Saturday morning.  The greatest impact of these storms will be to produce heavy snow and very hazardous travel conditions, primarily along the Mogollon Rim and higher terrain of Yavapai County.  The higher terrain of Northeast Arizona will see less snow fall.

Changes since last briefing:  The forecast snow levels are nudging up a bit from the previous forecasts.  This will bring considerable uncertainty to those areas near the snow level (Prescott, Payson, etc) where a minor change in the storm dynamics will have a large impact on the amount of snow measured.

Summary of Storm Impacts: 

The first storm will begin to impact the area on Thursday, with the greatest snowfall expected Thursday night. Current indications are for snow levels to be around 5000', higher toward eastern Arizona. 

The second storm will move in from the west on Friday afternoon, with the greatest impacts Friday night and Saturday morning.  Expect very heavy snowfall and strong winds (gusting to 30 mph) Friday night into early Saturday, with extremely dangerous travel conditions. Snow levels will generally be around 5000'...falling to around 4000-4500' toward the tail end of the event.

There will be a break in the weather on Sunday, followed by another heavy snow event on Monday, with snow levels possibly down to 4000-4500'.


 

This is an extended period of high-impact weather, the details will be evolving with time.  Stay tuned, and be prepared!

National Radon Action Month 2017

January is National Radon Action Month and we're disseminating information about Radon

 

Learn About Risk From Radon

You can't see, smell or taste radon, but it could be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. In fact, the NNEPA and the U.S. Surgeon General urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes, schools and other buildings for radon.

Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk and testing radon levels in your home can help prevent unnecessary exposure. If a high radon level is detected in your home, you can take steps to fix the problem to protect yourself and your family. 

 

Four Things You Can Do During National Radon Action Month

    1.    Test your home - NNEPA and the U.S. Surgeon General recommend that all homes in the U.S. be tested for radon.  Testing is easy and inexpensive.

        o    Learn more about testing your home, including how to obtain an easy-to-use test kit.

    2.    Attend a National Radon Action Month event in your area - Look for radon events in your community.

    3.    Spread the word

    4.    Spend time during National Radon Action Month encouraging others to learn about radon and test their homes.

        o    Tell your family and friends about the health risk of radon.  Encourage them to test their homes.

        o    Plan an activity Exit in your community to help raise awareness.

        o    Write an op-ed or letter to the editor using samples from the event planning resources.

        o    Attract media attention by working with a local official to get a radon proclamation.

        o    View or order EPA's free radon publications.

    5.     Buy a radon-resistant home - If you are considering buying a new home, look for builders who use radon-resistant new construction. Read more about radon-resistant new construction, 

 

"Building Radon Out: A Step-by-Step Guide to Build Radon-Resistant Homes".

o    Build Green: It's Easy to Build New Homes Radon-Resistant ..."The good news is you can build your customers a safer, healthier, radon-resistant home. The techniques to prevent radon from entering a home are practical and straightforward for any builder. It's an inexpensive way to offer families a benefit that could reduce their risk of lung cancer. And it's a smart way to build trust between you and your customer."  Fuad Reveiz, Member of the National Association of Home Builders
