SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) — The Department of Public Safety is warning travelers that some parts of northern Arizona's high country could see nearly a foot of new snow and freezing temperatures.

The snow is expected to start accumulating Monday night. It will likely last into Tuesday.

Authorities say the highways could get slippery and traffic is expected to be moving slowly in the morning hours.

The Department of Public Safety says it will be shifting resources to make more highway patrolmen available to respond to emergency calls.

On Monday, Highway 89A between Sedona and Interstate 17 was reopened after being closed Sunday night and early Monday due to heavy snow and ice on the pavement.

The Department of Transportation says it had nearly 80 snowplows working to clear northern Arizona highways.
