Hoffnung entspringt der Ewigkeit. (Hope springs eternal)

There continues to be a chance for at least a bit of snow around Christmas time. Although, still two weeks away, the computer models keep putting in a storm the weekend before. And, as a special treat, there is a storm a day or two after, too. Hopefully, this will break down the storm door and change up the winter for a while.

I’m still not sure I buy it. But, Hopefully, it will be a very snowy week!

I told you not to read this post.

ShareIs there a chance for a White Christmas? Yes, but I seriously doubt it for this year in Flagstaff. But wait! Look what popped into the longer range computer model for the Friday before Christmas. It looks pleasantly blue, but those are low precipitation rates, which could lead to a nice whitening effect. I recommend […]

Another Ridiculously Resilient Ridge, or just La Nina

ShareJJ challenged me to comment on Facebook about a post from WeatherWest.com about the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge from a few years back. This was the weather system that gave California a long drought, and robbed Arizona of a good El Nino winter. The blob of warm water disappeared and the ridge went with it. I […]

Will it ever truly snow this winter? Will Stu ever blog again?

ShareProbably, and yes. Hello everyone. Sorry for the long break between posts. As previously, I’ve been occupied with being in Europe. More on that some other time. I have been watching the development of the winter. I typically become more fixated on winter storms, and not so much on winter droughts. This winter is a […]

Julys, July’s or Julies? Well, they’ve been wet.

ShareI did check on dictionary.com. At that site, Julys or Julies are both deemed correct. However, as I type in the WordPress editor, Julys has a red dotted line under it. Well, anyway, I’ll use Julies since that will create the most confusion. Four of the last 8 have been more than one standard deviation […]

ShareIn June, there have already been several thunderstorms and rain showers. But, a sustained monsoonal flow has been mostly absent. Dew point temperatures will rise throughout the week, with most Arizona being in the mid-40s by next weekend. While isolated thunderstorms would be come more frequent this week, next saturday is the first day that […]

ShareYes, my last post was on May 4. Here we are several weeks, and European trips, later. Since May 4th, I have travelled to Prague, Greece, Italy, Austria and the far south of Germany. Prague was a work trip to see some stunning work presented! Greece was a week long sailing trip that came about […]

Unsettled weather could delay fire season

ShareNext Tuesday through Thursday, a low pressure system is currently in the forecast to move across Northern Arizona. It should bring considerable water, but spread across the three day period. That should help with fire season after several weeks with high winds. I don’t write much about the spring winds. The driving force is the […]

Major Snowstorm to Hit Flagstaff Tonight

 Northern Arizona Weather  Comments Off on Major Snowstorm to Hit Flagstaff Tonight
Apr 012017
 

ShareWelcome to April! Unbelievably, all of the computer models have changed overnight. Flagstaff will receive 5-7 feet of snow overnight! The National Weather Service is clearly scrambling to get a grip what they should do about this. No severe weather warnings have been issued. Expect temperatures to drop severely this afternoon and early evening. Snow […]

Little pink dot means?

ShareCheck out the image below. The little pink dot over the Flagstaff means that there is still a chance for March to have normal, or even a bit above normal precipitation. Even with the warm temperatures over the weekend, there is a change coming. The storm track will be crossing Arizona for the rest of […]
