Watching the GFS animation for the next 7 days this morning, I noticed a curious flow in the precipitation pattern. This flow reminded me of our last interaction with the remnants of a hurricane. Hurricane Norbert’s moisture missed us by traveling barely south of us. Next up for us are the remnants of Hurricane Odile. Currently, Odile is hitting Baja Mexico. Model predictions call for Odile’s moisture to move across most of Arizona. But, this morning’s GFS model for NOAA shows that a thin line might separate seriously wet areas from damp areas. We will have to keep watching to see where the water goes.

In the image below, I have added a yellow arrow to show the movement of precipitation. There is a large difference in the amounts to the southeast of the line and to the northwest of the line.

5-day total precipitation from the GFS model. Yellow arrow added for emphasis.
