Jul 092013

We have a very wet monsoonal pattern in place. Moisture from Tropical Storm Erick in the Eastern Pacific should augment our current wet pattern. It could be very wet later this week. But, what about June.

The National Weather Service reports that June was the 4th warmest on record. It was a hot one. But, when the overall temperature anomaly point of view, it barely shows up. Below is a graph of the monthly departure from normal temperatures from 1950-2013. From this departure from normal point of view, last winter was just as cold as June was hot. Also notice that our temperatures in Flagstaff haven’t changed much since the 1980s.

It looks like July will be warmer  than average, too. But July probably won’t exceed the normal levels like June.
