Today will start wet in Northern Arizona. Around night fall, maybe a  bit later, the rain should change to snow and start our El Nino winter. Almost an inch of water could fall from the skies in various forms. As it is often the case for these early winter storms, timing of the switch to […]

Is Flagstaff wetter than Munich?

My current frame of reference is Munich. It’s been mostly foggy with cool clear nights cause the still relatively warm moist ground to product fog. But, rainfall and first snow have been on my mind. 3.68 inches of rain have fallen in Flagstaff in October. This is more than double the normal amount. Below is […]

I continue to be interested in the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation(AMO) impact of Flagstaff precipitation. It surprises me that there could be a link between the sea surface water temperatures in the North Atlantic and the rain and snow amounts on the other side of North America, in a desert. I past posts, I have discussed […]

Missing the October event

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 […]

It’s been a while since my last post. This is all thanks to Apple. I bought a new laptop because using my big MAC in Germany isn’t practical anymore. We just don’t have the room for it. After a week of using the new laptop, the arrow keys broke. The first chance I had, I […]

In the last two months, the Climate Prediction Center has not been very accurate with their 1-month precipitation outlooks. July and August precipitation amounts were close to average. September’s precipitation amount is running well below average. On the other hand, they we right about April, May and June. The long-range outlooks continue to show a […]

The start of next week may be very wet! Also, the 1 and 3-month outlooks are wet. Just so you know. But, after posting a link on Facebook to Scientific American article (How This Year’s El Niño Compares with the Past), I got a challenging question from MN about the winter of 1992-1993. In deed, […]

The Atlantic Hurricane season must be damaging advertising revenue for the major U.S. television news networks. Other than tropical systems forming, then quickly falling apart, there just hasn’t been any of the damage they crave to drive the revenue. No scary hurricanes, no viewers. On a side note, there has been much recent background noise […]

Yet again, an East Pacific hurricane is going to bring plenty of moisture to Arizona. It just showed up in the computer models, so it may not happen. If it does, 2-4 inches of rain could show up this week. More later. In München, es ist schön. Aber, morgen Abend wird es regnen und zu […]

After several failed attempts and lots of translation about a thing called a Fritzbox, I finally have a weather station up and running here in Munich. You can view it on Weather Underground as station ID IBAYERNM52. I’m using a very nice, get one for yourself because its cool, Acu-Rite Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station. with […]
