April 15th

Views of the Catalinas and San Francisco Peaks from campus and from Flagstaff - above and at bottom - from around 6:00 am MST. Some nice color but only a bit of cloudiness, as our rain-free April continues.

In my 20 years of record here for April, the wettest was in 2001 with 1.69" and there have been 5 years with no April rainfall. Average here for those 20 years has been only 0.30".

Plumes above (from the 06 UTC GEFS runs) are for rainfall at the airport. The models are holding out a bit of hope for light showers next Sunday night. The GFS forecast from 06 UTC below keeps rain through the end of the month north and east of Tucson. Not much to write about weather-wise for our local area. Hope we don't have to wait until July before we get a bit of rain here.
