The storm we are expecting for today and tonight may just bring wind when it is all said and done. Any precip will be minimal. The sky and the Shark Oil Barometer are clear. Later this week and sometime next week, storms are set to dig farther south and have a bigger impact than today’s.
All of which prompts the questions of
- Did March start as a lamb?
- Will March finish as a Lion?
The graph below shows the high and low temperatures and peak wind speed for each day in March. Overall, March has been quite warm in Northern Arizona with the average temperature for the month coming in at 4.7 degrees above normal. But, you already knew that. Looking at winds for the month, there really doesn’t seem to be a meaningful trend. Notice that the daily low temps have been fairly stable.
If the storms pay-off for the next week or so, then I think we will be leaving with the lion, hopefully a soaking wet one.
