VERDE VALLEY – Jerome residents woke up to 2.5 inches of snow Wednesday morning, according to Brian Klimowski, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Snowflakes were reported just south of Cottonwood and even in parts of Camp Verde.

Higher elevations in Sedona (such as West Sedona) received about 1 inch of snow.

The storm system rolled into the area around 5 p.m. Tuesday and tapered off Wednesday morning, said Klimowski.

According to the NWS, Cottonwood received about 0.35 inches of rain and Camp Verde received 0.42 inches. Sedona received 0.26 inches of rain, and Oak Creek Canyon received 0.49 inches.

Klimowski said there are no flood threats from this storm’s rain and snow.

Yavapai County Flood Control confirmed that they are not anticipating any flood risks.

The next system is expected to move into the area Saturday night or Sunday morning, with snow expected at elevations above 3,500 feet, according to the NWS. Klimowski said this upcoming storm is not expected to bring as much precipitation to the Verde Valley.
