Weather may have been boring, but at least tonight's sunset was not boring.

Congratulations on your new job at NWS Phoenix! Hopefully the region will get some active monsoonal activity this summer!   I haven't posted much on here lately, because the weather hasn't been too ex

Pretty solid GFS ensemble agreement for a chilly period starting the 10th with low snow levels in the mountains again.  Now to see if it hangs on into the believable range.

NWS mentions some deep troughs passing through here a week from now, but too far to be certain about their effects.

Cold or the flu?

 

Thinking flu, it was on the mend until the low humidity hit us.

Your sinuses probably won't like the way the models are trending toward drier, cooler, and windier solutions for late next week and beyond.  Feel better soon!

Been dry here in Phoenix but generally below average temperatures for the most part. Looks like some more rain and lower elevation snow for the mtns in a week. 

 

I'll be there next week.  I wouldn't mind seeing some rain.

Had a high of 76F today slightly warmer than yesterday. I noticed HPWREN finally removed Toro Peak from their camera network, as the cameras on that mountain have all been down since February.

 

Nice sunset this evening:

Looks lovely outside today. Still raining here, which is interesting as it's not showing up at all on doppler radar.

Last measurable rain for me was back on December 26. We are still above-average for this point in the water year, but it'll quickly fall below if we don't get more soon.

Taal volcano appears to be undergoing a large eruption in the Philippines. Volcanic eruptions, especially significant ones, in that part of the world almost always directly affects our climate here on the west coast of North America. Last time Taal erupted was 1977, which here in Southern California was followed by one of our wettest rainy seasons in history for 1977-78. The eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991 ended a five-year drought here as well and gave us a very cool summer.

 

No guarantees on how this will affect our weather, but this is definitely worth watching.
