For at least the next 6-10 days, it looks like there is a good chance for things to return to the pre-Christmas, December pattern. This first round look s like it may be light on water content and cold weather. Over the weekend, the models kept switching between dry and 3/4″ of water. Now, 1/10″ to 1/4″ of water precipitation looks to be in order. But the NOGAPS and GFS models disagree. NOGAPS shows very little precip. GFS shows quite a lot. In Flagstaff, we will most likely be rain.
But wait, there is more! There are opportunities for the storms to keep moving through every few days, with temperatures dropping along the way. I can almost guarantee next week will be snowy, because of the activities I have planned.
Today the Shark Oil Barometer is totally clear. But, did you notice the clouds moving into the area? We haven’t had clouds in quite a while, I think.
