Just a quick note. It did rain at my place yesterday. Seemed wet north of Route 66 in town. Today will dry out, but Sunday through most of next week should be wetter.
But, Check this out:
Statement as of 6:05 PM MST on July 30, 2009
... Record low temperatures for northern Arizona on Jul 30 2009... Petrified Forest (1931 - 2009) 51 54 in 2003 These records are preliminary pending official reports.
Most of July has been above average temperature in the southwest. I think this is the only record extreme I can remember for the month.
