  1. I was sick of it before I got here lol I'm trying to get out.
  2. Hopefully the heavy rain coming in will finally put an end to many of these fires. It's just what we need.
  3. One of the biggest problems with Davis has been the ancient data logger and software. I recently upgraded to their weatherlink IP. It's overpriced, but makes it very easy to get your data online.
  4. I also have a Davis Vantage Pro 2. I've had it since 2013 and only needed to do some maintenance about once a year. I added a daytime fan aspirator about 2 years ago.
  5. Long range forecasting is crap but it's still fun to think about. So with that said... Southern Arizona (where I am) is almost always warm and dry during la nina so I will go with that. The Great Basin was horrid last winter, so my guess is a return to normal or perhaps above normal snowfall with average to slightly below average temperatures. PNW will probably be a bit cooler than normal and wetter than normal. As for whether that transitions to snowstorms is anybody's guess, but probably not a snowless winter coming up.
  6. Still bone dry and boring down here. Temps still topping 100 F most days but we might get into the upper 90s in about a week.
  7. I sure love the high mountain alpine lakes. It's just peace to the soul up there.
  8. Above normal down here right now with no chance of rain. At least the monsoon was fun, because it will likely be quite dry for a while.
  9. Nora got hung up along the coast of Mexico and will never make it here. Should still see some heavy rain Tuesday or Wednesday from moisture that travels north from the storm.
  10. A tropical system will be coming up towards Baja and maybe the southwest in about a week. Ironically it will have the same name 'Nora' as another system with a very similar track from 1997 that caused a lot of problems down here. SSTAs are above normal so I suppose its possible.
  11. It's starting to look like we could get some more action early next week. The NHC invest off of Mexico will eventually send some moisture in here and increase rain chances. Too early to get specific on details though.
  12. I ended up getting another inch from a localized thunderstorm in the middle of the night, but we are probably drying out after today for a while. Hopefully we can see some transition events in September. With la nina, I am not confident on having a good winter, but if we can at least be near average that'd be ok.
  13. I had quite the storm the other night! Looks like we could get more today.
  14. Nothing at my place, but areas around Phoenix have seen significant rainfall the last 2 days. Hopefully I can get something soon. I could have chased tonight but was in the office...of course!
