FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A cold front headed toward Arizona could bring rain and snow showers to northern and eastern parts of the state.

The National Weather Service in Flagstaff says the cold front will move into northwestern Arizona Wednesday afternoon and move across the northern part of the state as evening approaches.

Forecasters expect snow showers and rain at lower elevations in both northern and eastern Arizona. But the storm isn't very powerful and only about an inch of new snow is expected for each 6 hour period from Wednesday night through Friday.

The storm should pass north of central and southern parts of Arizona.

Dry conditions are expected for the weekend.
