More Thermometer Tales

The 500 mb heights were amazing yesterday for so late in November - the 5920 m height at 00 UTC last evening (see above) was a record high height for the date. So, not surprising that the airport high of 92 F was both a record high for the date, and also the hottest ever so late in the year. Low here was 42 F this morning - around 13 F colder than up at the airport, so really big diurnal swings along the Rillito wash.

As for precipitation in the long range - I'll just point out that things are looking up - especially when one considers that the Winterhaven Festival of Lights is scheduled for December 9th through the 26th. We can almost always count on one very cold and very wet period during this festival.
