Neighbors in our winter park ; Parker Dam CA. : have had weather issues in Salt Lake City area in first weeks on November. Travelling from their home in Minnesota.
They now check the forecasts and if storms are in the forecast , head south to the Oklahoma City area before turning west, if the weather is forecast to be bad in the high country; Albuquerque & Flagstaff, they drop even further south and go into Phoenix on I-10.

Cool Best route to Phoenix

Makes sense. I just wish there was some statistical reference.

Yeah, keep in mind the elvations. Alb. is around 5,000ft., while Flagstaff is pushing 7,000ft. Makes a big difference when trying to plan out the weather.

You have gotten good advice.

My suggestion ... plan for different routes ... and check the weather before you go ... and while underway ... you may have to switch to avoid bad weather.

One fall on our way to AZ we were planning on going south from Oklahoma City to travel on I-20 ... there was an ice storm moving across that part of Texas causing that road to be a long hockey rink ... so we continued west on I-40 and roads were clear as a bell ...
