Drivers on SR 347 are cautioned to drive carefully.

Maricopa is under a dust storm warning and dust advisory after winds kicked up a wall of dust on the east side and west side of Pinal County, according to the National Weather Service.

The warning is in place until 4:30 p.m. At 3:39 p.m., a wall of dust was along a line extending from near Maricopa to 14 miles southeast of Freeman, moving west at 25 mph. The dust was already limiting visibility on State Route 347.

Visibility is some areas is less than a quarter-mile, creating dangerous driving conditions. The dust is particularly impacting SR 347 between mileposts 161 and 170.

Also impacted are SR 238 between mileposts 10 and 18 and Interstate 8 between mileposts 128 and 170.

The dust advisory is from a wall of dust form near Florence Junction to 10 miles west of Casa Grande. Visibility was less than three miles.

Doppler radar is also tracking a strong thunderstorm over Arizona City moving north at 20 mph. The storm has the potential for nickel-sized hail and winds over 40 mph.

Large portions of the golf course are under water, but Ak-Chin Southern Dunes is not completely shut down.

Arroyo Grill and the pro shop are still open with regular business hours, though the course probably won’t see golfers again until November. Blame it on the rain.

“There’s been nothing like this since I’ve been here,” General Manager Brady Wilson said.

Last week’s flooding of Vekol Wash was particularly hard on the Dunes. Wilson said the course received 3.9 inches of rain and then the flash flood waters from the south. It is still too early to assess damage.

The #miniDunes and first fairway were under water. A vast section of desert from hole 13 to hole 16 was full of water. Water was flowing over State Route 238 east and west of the course entrance, and the parking lot was flooded. Wilson was among employees stranded by the water and rescued by Ak-Chin Fire Department personnel.

Besides pumping out water, the restoration of the course will take a lot of hand work, but Wilson expects it to be back on schedule Nov. 3.

“And that’s only because of the commitment from our team,” Wilson said. “They are the most dedicated employees around.”

While there has been a lot of outreach from the community, vendors and friends volunteering to help, Wilson said the best way to help is to support Arroyo Grill.

“They were open for lunch for today. We still have one of the best restaurants in Maricopa,” Wilson said. “The Arroyo Grill is 100 percent operative.”

A wine dinner is scheduled for Oct. 27.

Though the flooding has been called catastrophic, the timing was not terrible. Ak-Chin Southern Dunes had been scheduled to close for overseeding Oct. 14 and reopen Nov. 3. Now, staff will be in a cleanup phase before the overseeding with the expectation of still re-opening Nov. 3.

Though the course is dealing with the biggest water hazards in its history, the greens are in good shape. As for the rest, the staff will have to wait until the water is gone.

The turf is muddy, and Wilson said the irony is there is no way to clean the turf except with more water. The National Weather Service is predicting more rain by Sunday.

“We don’t know at this point how impactful that will be,” Wilson said.

Art installation with reflecting pool? No, just the overpass construction waiting to drain from the week's flash floods.

Rain is expected to make a comeback during the weekend, according to the National Weather Service, but not before two clear and mild days.

Friday is forecast to be sunny with a high near 84 degrees F. The overnight low will be around 61.

Saturday is also expected to be sunny with light breezes and a high near 86. But rain clouds will reappear, bringing a 30 percent of showers after midnight and an overnight low of 63 degrees.

Sunday the possibility for rain increases to 40 percent. The day will be partly sunny with a high near 79 and winds of 10-15 mph boasting gusts up to 25 mph. The evening will be partly cloudy with a low around 56.

A 10 percent chance of rain lingers on Monday, Columbus Day, but the forecast for the rest of next week is clear with high temperatures in the 80s.

Storm clouds are moving over Maricopa, expected to bring heavy precipitation this week.

The remnants of Hurricane Rosa in the Pacific is bringing rain across Arizona, initiating a flash flood watch in northwest Pinal County.

The watch will be in effect from Monday morning through late Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service.

A flash flood watch means flooding of washes, creeks and other drainage areas is possible within the watch area. Locations in the watch area that are most likely to experience flash flooding will be poor drainage areas and normally dry washes near higher terrain.

If you are in the watch area, you should watch the weather and be prepared to take immediate action should heavy rain and flooding occur or a flash flood warning be issued.

NWS is forecasting thunderstorms to start tonight after 11 p.m. Rains are expected to continue through Wednesday, accumulating up to 2 inches. The chance of rain is 90 percent Monday night and 80 percent Tuesday.

There are sand bags located at each fire station and fire administration as well. There is a limit of eight sand bags per family.

Sand is located on the west side of the city (in front of the old city hall) on the corner of Madison Ave near Wilson Road.

Residents can pick up the bags at the designated locations and will need to bring their own shovel to fill the bags at the sand pile location.

Emergency Operations Center personnel will be monitoring the weather during this time period and will update the community as necessary.

NWS then expects heavy rainfall in the area beginning Sunday night and continuing at least through Tuesday. Some areas are expected to receive 1-2 inches of rain, which would include high likelihood of flooding. More precise information will be available as the new week approaches.
