FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A winter storm rolling in over the weekend will keep northern Arizona in the grips of freezing temperatures, bringing more snow and making travel a little tricky.

Phoenix residents could see a dusting of snow in the surrounding mountains as snow levels drop to 3,000 feet Saturday into Sunday. Several inches of snow could fall in the higher terrain.

The cold low pressure system that has settled over the West will keep residents bundled up until early next week.

Officials are reminding folks to protect plants, pipes and pets in the meantime.

Residents in northwestern Arizona and other desert areas of the state will experience the first freezing temperatures of the season.

Tucson crews were busy Thursday coating bridge decks with magnesium chloride to keep ice from sticking to roadways.
