First snow of the season hits.

20131010-004WILLIAMS—The seven-day forecast from the National Weather Service shows a 100% chance of snow today. They have issued a hazardous weather advisory which indicates that there is a 20131010-003possibility of 2 to 4 inches of accumulation above 6500-feet with 4-6 inches over the Kaibab Plateau.

The danger, of course, is that roadways may be slick and we advise caution in driving. Add extra time to get where you are going and slow down. Begin braking well in advance.

Photographers may want to take this opportunity to stop along Perkinsville Road or Highway 64 to take photographs. Ensure that you find a place where you can pull off of the road completely.

The snow is predicted to stop by tonight and the temperatures should rise and hover around the sixties through Columbus day which will not be observed this year due to the government shutdown.
