Williams weather permitting

Springtime snowfall in Williams.

WILLIAMS—Twenty-four inches of snow blanketed the city to welcome spring. The snow melted almost as fast as it came leaving some muddy spots in less maintained areas, such as around the Santa Fe Dam lake and forest roads.

The long range forecast shows a 30% chance of rain/snow starting Sunday night through Monday during the day. It is expected to clear by Monday night leaving no appreciable accumulation. The Williams weather usually consists of chances of snowfall through May.

Some train no matter the weather.

Temperatures will rise through Wednesday giving residents and visitors the opportunity to start training for the Lion’s Club 5-K/10-K and Fun Run during the Labor day weekend in September. The Mountain Man Run started last September and will be run again this year.

The advantages of registering early are lower prices and a free T-shirt. Through May 31, the prices for the 10-K, 5-K and fun run are $40, $30 and $15 respectively rising to $55, $45 and $30 on race day. Those who register before July 31 get a T-shirt. If you cannot race, the Lion’s Club accepts volunteers for traffic control and other assistance.

The race benefits the vision and hearing services that the Lion’s Club provides for the Williams Community. You can register for the race at Virtual Roster.
