The pattern just doesn’t appear to be changing. The middle of this week, Tuesday-Thursday, will bring a better chance for rain, but it doesn’t look like we will be seeing any thing huge.
Thursday night through the early weekend looks a little scary. While temperatures should be lower than average, there will be significant, gusty, dry southwest winds. There are several active wildfires in Arizona right now. The Wild Horse Complex, northwest of Flagstaff, continues to be managed. It’s been a while since we had much rain. Hopefully, the mid-week moisture will see us through.
The winds are being brought to us courtesy of a transiting low pressure system that would be more typical of winter. We’ll see the effect of it on the Shark Oil Barometer.
