Yesterday I occasionally watched the weather radar as events emerged across Arizona. I could tell Flagstaff was going to get an early morning wake-up call from Mother Nature. And Mother Nature did not disappoint.
I did miss being in Arizona to see it first hand. October storms like this are often some of the most interesting to me. To me, if not the data, October is often a drier month with lots of wind. The occasional storm is more fun than wind.
With the recent precipitation, October is well above average for precipitation. With 3.21 inches, Flagstaff is roughly double the monthly average since 1950. The Northland can expect more rain today, but then a drier trend is on the way with lower chances through Friday, and a clear fall weekend.
