WILLIAMS—Snow touched down in Williams, late last night, dumping about 3.5-inches. The long range forecast shows snow through Sunday night clearing by Monday morning. There will be a slight chance of rain and snow Tuesday night.
The good news is that is makes for a more scenic journey on the Polar Express, gives the Christmas feel and is a start at replenishing the water resources at Kaibab Lake, Buckskinner Lake, the Santa Fe Dam and other reservoirs in the area. The bad news is that it is only a start. The city will need quite a few more of these type storms to restore the lakes.
Williams could receive an additional 2-inches during the day with 3-5 additional inches overnight. There is a chance for another 3-5 inches over Saturday.
Residents should be aware that parking on the street is against city ordnance and hampers snow removal efforts. Visitors should be aware that this is enforced mainly in the downtown area and they should use the city parking lot around and across the street from the Williams Visitor center through Saturday. Or just walk through our winter wonderland. Just be careful of the ice.
