Forecast for Friday, February 16, 2018


Wow, wow, wow, just wow! 1.01″ of rain yesterday at the airport is a new record for February 15th. All of a sudden we are .06″ above average rainfall for the year at 1.47″ 1.45″ of that came in the last two days! I grew up in Oregon (I may have mentioned that). A full day of light to moderate rain and drizzle plus this morning’s fog is making me homesick! I’ve lived here 12 1/2 years and I love it. It’s just nice when Oregon comes to visit me. It doesn’t happen that often.

The hits keep coming. Another disturbance is headed for southern Arizona from the south and that should give us a chance for scattered showers today. The best chance will be to our east but we should get in on some of the action. Nice and cool with a high near 66ish.

Slight chance for showers before midnight tonight and patchy fog tonight into tomorrow morning with a low in the upper 40s.
