Rt 89A AZ

Looking at traveling from St George UT to Bitter Springs AZ via 59, 389and 89A in November. What may be expect to encounter weatherwise and road conditions?

Responses are slim!!! SO, will give you our experience on 89A from TWO weeks ago.
There is fuel in Kanab and Jacob Lake. The road is narrow. Lots of twists and turns in the Kaibab forest as you climb to Jacob Lk and again descending east of Jacob Lk. Take your time! It`s a high mountain road, don`t recall but 6000+ ft or so high. The overnite temps are already below freezing on the Phoenix weather/news shows.
For weather we use the NOAA website. Gives good forecasts and whatever point you click on it gives you the elevation. For Arizona road conditions we use az511.com
Drive safe

Google earth will show you lots of information:

Select get directions then enter starting address and destination address

then right click on the highlighted route and select show elevation profile ... shows you the grades that you will be travelling ...

you can also virtually drive the roads by dragging the little yellow man to the highlighted route ... you can see the width of the lanes, shoulders, etc.

89A is full of twist, turns and is pretty narrow. If you are traveling in a big rig, slow down and take your time. It's about 15 miles from Jerome to Prescott and there is like 112 curves. Beautiful drive but be careful and enjoy...

I dought he will get as far south as Jerome and you DO NOT take a MH there. As to the route asked about in Nov you can get snow, I know 4 letter word as you will be in the high country. So be prepared. The roads are good as of last year as we headed north from the winter land of the south. But Anything north of Flagstaff can mean snow from Late Oct to late April. we had a foot on our way north but just stayed put an xtra day and it was like summer two days later. If its freezing nights start a little late so the sun can take care of any frost on the road and tune to weather station before travel.
