Weather Forecast

The Labor Day weekend proved to be a wet one for Parker and La Paz County as the “20 percent chance of rain” for Sunday, Sept. 1 proved to be that and more as a monsoon storm swept through the area, causing damage to structures and knocking out power to many residents, particularly in the upriver area, the Colorado River Indian Reservation, and Big River. Kudos to the line crews that worked around the clock to restore power, and to all first responders.

I also want to thank Tribal Council Member Anisa Patch for her updates on social media. She got a lot of needed information out to the public.

As for the upcoming week, it looks like it’s all sunny and hot, but the highs will be lower than they have been. They’ll be around 100 degrees Monday through Thursday, but they’ll start climbing again by the end of the week. The lows are expected to drop into the upper 70s early next week and then stay there for the rest of the week.
