The expansion of the Heber Overgaard Rim Community Library is beginning to show progress with the foundation completed and a framing crew starting wall construction this week.
The gorgeous early to mid-week calm, warm days are predicted to give way to clear but windy conditions over the weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for much of northeastern Arizona that includes Heber Overgaard and the Mogollon Rim. A series of low pressure troughs is predicted to bring strong winds and may lead to wind advisories and exceed fire weather thresholds. A fire weather watch has been issued along with the wind advisory to extend through our weekend.
