Thanks to Flag’s FAV, Lee Born….


From Lee Born:

Ughhhh! Kind of a frustrating…a non productive monsoon thus far. Though we had a nice early start the pattern has yet to hit full throttle. July rain totals were measly and the best rains came at the very beginning of the season(those couple of days in late June early July). Here are a look at the rain totals for July.
You will notice way below for the month and also on the calendar year.

As of today 8/4, dew points have jumped up across the desert into the 60’s, while in Flagstaff the atmosphere still remains rather dry with the dew point this morning at 36. Southerly flow will transport some moisture northward today through Thursday. Possible tstorms from Yavapai make there way into the region this evening and with moisture in place Thursday it should be a moderately active day. Friday and Saturday a unseasonable Pacific trough moves through the west bringing in drier air and breezy conditions. Although…maybe….this trough interacts with the moisture in place for these days to be fairly active. That would be nice and remains to be seen.
Sunday dry….Monday dry….mid next week moisture starts to creep back in though nothing impressive by any stretch.

Thanks to Lee for the info! FM appreciates you hookin’ me up with the info.
