Drought Continues


Mostly fair skies this morning, but with varying amounts of high cirrus coming by.

Models forecast continuing dry conditions well into early October. Above graphic shows the GEFS plumes for QPF at the airport through next Sunday.

Serious drought conditions continue across much of the western US, including southeastern Arizona. Below is part of drought monitor map from last Tuesday. I snipped the eastern and islands portion of the map to show that the northeast, Alaska, and the Hawaiian Islands are suffering from dry conditions also.

Forecast below is from the 00 UTC WRF-GFS and is for total precipitation through 5:00 pm MST on Tuesday, October 4th. Our lack of measurable rain here during September, continues into October.
