  1. I hope that has helped with the snowpack in the Rockies at least a little bit.
  2. There could even be some light showers from a deep marine layer, and even possibly some instability / convective showers in some parts of Socal on Sunday as the cold core of the low moves over the area.
  3. Regardless of what happens next year ENSO-wise, I just hope that CA and OR (and hopefully other regions of the SW U.S.) have a much wetter season and more mountain snow after Norcal having two dismally dry winters in a row.
  4. Do you and others at NWS Phoenix see signs that we may have a more active monsoon this summer? I have been reading some hints on this possibility recently, but I wanted to see what your take is on it.
  5. With the ongoing drought in the SW US and last summer's "nonsoon", I feel that you are experiencing what is likely one of the most boring years that Phoenix has ever had in their history. I know that it is a dry climate, but this year has been downright dry! I am really hoping for a much more active monsoon this summer, not just for AZ, but for the SW in general, including portions of Socal as well.
  6. It rained very lightly here in Orange last night but it wasn't enough to wet the ground or measure.
  7. That looks like the 241 just south of the Chapman Ave / Santiago Cyn interchange.
  8. I picked up 0.05" here in Orange with the Wednesday night / Thursday morning event.
  9. I actually received some heavy drizzle / light rain here in Orange earlier tonight.
  10. Not only have portions of Oregon been dry, but the entire state of CA has been bone dry this winter thanks to almost every storm being an "inside slider".
  11. I hope that pattern can bring some beneficial storms into California where the rain and snow are badly needed!
  12. I am really concerned by the number of what I call "ultra dry seasons" that we have experienced since 2000. I define an "ultra dry season" as a rainfall year (July 1 - June 30) in which Downtown Los Angeles receives less than 7" of rain for the season. Between 1877 and 2000, only 1898-99, 1893-94, 1923-24, 1958-59, and 1960-61 fell in that category, although there were several other drier seasons that recorded between 7" and 8". Since 2000, 2001-02, 2006-07, 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2017-18 have been all "ultra dry seasons", and if we don't receive much more rain this season, 2020-21 will become
  13. January and February have been much drier in a good portion of CA during the last decade, with a few exceptions, of course. 2016-17 and 2018-19 have been the best two winters in CA since 2010-11. We have had some really abysmal seasons during this stretch, and this must have something to do with why January hasn't delivered as much in the PNW in recent years.
  14. 1999-00 was definitely better than 2013-14 and 2017-18 in Socal, but the fall was very similar to this year.
  15. The winds have been stronger here in Orange this evening than they have been for most of the day. I am hoping the winds relax some later tonight.
