Only a thin layer of snow was left on Mogollon High School’s football field on Wednesday from the snowstorm received over St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The quick melting resulted in muddy conditions on non-surfaced roads in the area.
With the freezing days we have had earlier this week — with lows dipping to almost single digits — the warming trend that is with us will continue through this weekend with highs in the mid- to upper-60s and lows just above freezing to the upper-30s. Partly cloudy skies are forecasted to accompany this trend.
The strongest winter storm of the season passed through the Heber Overgaard over St. Patrick’s Day weekend. High winds were unofficially clocked at 40 mph. Heber Overgaard received upwards of 12 inches of snow and more in some areas along the Mogollon Rim. It made driving hazardous in some areas. As the week progressed, the blanket of snow recessed with a warm-up that ensued.
