Winter Storm Q Snowfall: State-by-State Predictions for Winter Storm Q

Here's the Winter Storm Q state-by-state predictions for Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado:

Arizona

- Up to 16 inches of snow is expected to fall in the Flagstaff area.

- Above 2,000 feet (such as the Mogolion Rim north of Payson), expected snowfall will be 6-10 inches on average, with up to 20 in some areas.

- Hail fell Wednesday on the Phoenix metropolitan area, making a slushy mess for vehicular traffic.

- Flagstaff public schools? Kids can rejoice and parents can hold their heads; it's cancelled. Drunken Arizona State University students can nurse their hangover a little longer, because classes have been cancelled there as well.

- Snow halted the WGC/Accenture Match Play Championship, irritating golf fans. Play should resume Thursday morning.

New Mexico

Colorado

- Live near the Western Slope? Expect up to 10 inches.

- Denver International Airport has cancelled all flights on Wednesday, which is sure to inconvenience the several people planning on visiting Denver in mid-February.
