Looks like several areas might turn in record lows for this date. The Flagstaff record low for this date is 39F. This morning the airport is reporting 36F, and still dropping. Bellemont is showing 24F. Here are some other numbers

Location Record Low(F) Today’s Low(F)
Grand Canyon 40 30
Page 63 59
Prescott 48 48
Flagstaff 39 36

These temperatures are still dropping at 6am. It’s 39F at my station. Today and tonight will be much below normal for most of Northern Arizona.

For the week ahead, the monsoonal high should return and adopt a favorable position for providing moisture flow and seasonable temperatures for the Flagstaff Area.

For the first time since probably June, the Shark Oil Barometer is cloudy this morning.

This weekend should be perfect!

Today might seem a little raw with cool temperatures and high, gusty winds. Temperatures should be slightly below normal.

Well, most of the forecasts are showing slight chances for isolated thunderstorms for the next few days. Go figure. It doesn’t match the computer models that I typically watch.  I think the dewpoint is higher than we might normally expect to see in June. If more moisture and a low pressure system come through, we could see some rain. We should see wind.

Yesterday was an average day, temperature wise. It wil probably be cooler than that thhrough the weekend.

Record Breaking Temps Could Mean Cool Summer?

Wow, I was reading this on Monday: Thoughts on Summer

And now the National Weather Service says:

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FLAGSTAFF AZ
240 PM MST WED MAY 6 2009

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE WILL PRODUCE NEAR RECORD TO RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURES THROUGH FRIDAY...WITH ABOVE AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURES
CONTINUING INTO THIS WEEKEND. SPRINGTIME BREEZES ARE EXPECTED EACH
AFTERNOON WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS OCCURRING THURSDAY AND AGAIN ON
SATURDAY.

So, we will see, but I think this summer could be quite mild and a little cooler than normal. Still not certain about precip for the summer.
