A big winter storm is making its way into Arizona and officials in the northern part of the state said they are ready for it.

"It's really going to be more of an issue of ice," said Melissa Preston with the City of Prescott. "It has to do with how quickly the rain will turn to snow, so icy conditions are anticipated much more than snow accumulation."

Despite Preston's prediction that the storm will bring more ice than snow, crews are still scheduled for long shifts to make sure everyone can get to work on Friday morning.

"We'll have crews working 12-hours shifts to clear the area, so we're on kind of a wait-and-see mode at this point," she said. "We do have equipment prepared and ready for the snow."

Prescott is forecast to get about five inches of snow.
