This week has been wonderfully comfortable. Maybe it has been too breezy, but the winds have been lessening. While the headlines are all about the East baking in the summer sun, the West has racked up low temperature records. For June, the daily highs have been as low as 8 degrees below normal for Flagstaff. It’s an interesting situation.
It is all about to change. Temperatures should climb closer to our normal highs by this weekend. Next week, we should see those temperatures be with in a couple degrees on the high or low side of 80. The winds should decline overall. We may still have another bout or two of breezy days. Remember, it has to get hot to fire up the monsoon.
Another interesting thing is Hurricane Adrian. Remember, hurricanes can affect the weather for a thousand miles from their core. I am afraid Adrian will impede the flow of moisture toward Arizona. This flow should be starting.
