The warm up has begun in our area as of late. Gone are the mornings where the temperature consistently reaches below 20 degrees. Where last week we had a drop in the water levels of runoff in our creeks due to colder nights, now a rise has occurred in those creeks due to the warmer weather above our community.
Even with the snowmelt, there is a good amount of snowpack still remaining in the upper elevations of the Mogollon Rim. So the run off is expected to continue for some time.
Highway 260 closed for short time
On Tuesday March 30 at approximately 5:30 p.m., Highway 260 closed for a short period following a fatal motorcycle accident one-half mile west of Forest Lakes. After a short time, the Arizona Highway Patrol began directing traffic to one lane around the accident until it was cleared up. Reasons for the accident were unclear.
