Last weeks storm provided some needed relief to many parts of Arizona. We didn’t get as much as expected. There is a chance for another bit of rain on Friday or Saturday. It isn’t steady in the computer models. But, the Climate Prediction Center posted a new one-month outlook.
Unfortunately, the Climate Prediction Center based this chart on the last storm being a bigger hit. So, we shouldn’t expect much more. From the discussion notes:
THE AREA OF FAVORED BELOW-MEDIAN PRECIPITATION HAS BEEN REMOVED AND THE FAVORED
ABOVE-MEDIAN PRECIPITATION AREA IS SHIFTED CONSIDERABLY SOUTH ACROSS THE
SOUTHWEST. THIS CHANGE REFLECTS IMPACTS VERY EARLY IN MARCH RATHER THAN ANY
CONFIDENCE IN A LONGER TERM PATTERN CHANGE OF WHAT HAS BEEN SO FAR A DRY WINTER
IN THESE AREAS.
