Arizona’s long-delayed monsoon finally gusted into Rim Country last week, immediately tamping down the fire danger and blowing open the door to reopening the forest.

Arizona is in the midst of perhaps the worst drought in 1,200 years, regardless of the blessings of a relatively normal winter, according to study published in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

Over the weekend, Hurricane Lorena barreled up the Baja coast, danced over northern Mexico and sloshed into Arizona. By Monday morning, lightning flashed, up to four inches of rain fell around the state, and flash floods gushed down normally dry washes.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., October 1, 2018, For Immediate Release — With heavy rains expected from Tropical Storm Rosa, the Coconino National Forest may temporarily close roads, trails, or recreation sites in order to provide for public safety.
