We got a couple inches of snow last night, with temperatures into the low 20s.

Most of it is melted by the sun today, but there’s still snow on the ground.

We are supposed to be warming up over the next week.

The Forest Service says we can build campfires and shoot guns starting on Nov. 11.

Be careful out there.

Shooting and Fire Restrictions to be Lifted Wednesday, November 11 on the Prescott National Forest

Contact(s): Debbie Maneely: 928-777-2212

PRESCOTT, AZ, November 9, 2020– Due to recent moisture, cooler temperatures, and shorter days, as well as a reduction in fire activity and resource commitment nationwide, the Prescott National Forest will lift all fire and recreational shooting restrictions on Wednesday, November 11th at 8:00 AM. While all fire restrictions will be lifted, forest visitors are reminded that the potential for wildfires still exists and to please use caution with campfires and other potential ignition sources.

Now that campfires are again allowed on the Prescott National Forest, fire managers remind the public that abandoned campfires are still the leading cause of human-caused wildfires. Forest visitors are urged to follow campfire safety procedures. It is every camper’s responsibility to properly maintain and extinguish a campfire to prevent wildfires.

Visitors can obtain additional information by visiting the Prescott National Forest Website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/prescott/ or by following us on Facebook or Twitter.
