Yesterday was a rough day for many folks. The tornado strikes have been well documented everywhere. If you have photos of the event the National Weather Service in Flagstaff is looking for them. With this storms precipitation, we have the NWS reporting a total of 6.8 inches of rain since August 1st. Just about 1 inch below my target forecast of 7.61 inches for August-October this year.
As the low pressure system and it’s associated clouds move out of the area, we should see significantly lower temperatures. There are freeze warnings posted above 65oo feet for tonight. This is fairly late in the season as you can see from the chart below.
The Climate Prediction Center shifted it’s outlook for the 6-10 day time frame back to dry. This matches the GFS and NOGAPS models. The 6-10 day out look also has more seasonal temperatures forecasted.
