The Weather Outlook
Weather forecasts and other travel advisories are posted in this section.
Let's be careful out there...
During especially heavy or prolonged rains, many low water crossings flood, especially in the steep, narrow canyon areas. Road closure signs are posted for a reason - the road is CLOSED. Do NOT go around the signs. Do NOT attempt to cross a flooded roadway when you cannot see pavement under the water; you have no assurance the pavement is still there. Even a small amount of water at the right velocity can sweep a pickup truck, and its occupants, off the roadway and downstream. You don't want swift water rescue teams to be a part of your evening. .
During and immediately after heavy rainfall, do NOT go near storm channels, creeks or streams.
Do NOT allow your children to sled down the hillsides and across or into the roadway and possibly into oncoming traffic or snowplows.
Check out the roadways BEFORE you travel.
