Drivers should delay travel across northern Arizona during the current winter storm because heavy snow or crashes could make roads impassable.

"If snow sits on your roof, when it starts to melt, that's when it turns to ice and water and gets real heavy", said Larry Cook, owner of Big Sky Roofing in Flagstaff.

Snow settled over the desert near Scottsdale, Arizona, after severe weather continued to affect the region on Friday morning, February 22, according to the National Weather Service.Video posted to Twitter shows a blanket of snow covering cacti in north Scottsdale.

The total from midnight to roughly 5:30 p.m. was 31.6 inches, breaking the previous record for snowfall in day of 31.0 inches that was set on December 30, 1915.

Flagstaff received a one-day record of 33 inches of snow.

"It is by no means over for us", said meteorologist Mark Stubblefield in Flagstaff. The storm has brought the first significant snowfall at the airport in a decade with 0.8 inch (2 centimeter) by Thursday afternoon.

Several roads across Arizona, including northbound Interstate 17 for about 40 miles (64 kilometers) south of Flagstaff, were closed.

Tsitsipas was seeing the ball very well on Kukushkin's serve and returns, hitting some juicy forehand and backhand winners straight down the line.

"Sometimes it's just unsafe".

To put this in perspective, Flagstaff picked up nearly the average annual snow in Chicago - 37.1 inches - and bested the annual average snowfall in New York City's Central Park - 25.3 inches - by over 10 inches in just one day.

More than 0.6 meters was dropped over Payson, a town that encounters that much snowfall as its yearly average. "I've got a family to go home to".

Johnny Bravo, front-desk manager at Kohl's Ranch Lodge about 20 minutes from Payson, said the snow there topped 30 inches (76.2 centimeters). "I don't know how they're going to hold up".

But for some, the snow was a fun reprieve. The admissions officer at Northern Arizona University is from Hawaii but spent the past three years in Flagstaff.

"It's fun from the inside when you're watching the snow, cause its' such a different experience".
