Hot Afternoons

Views of the Catalinas this morning: above at 6:15 am MST and bottom at 5:55 am.

Current NWS forecast for Sunday through Tuesday (above) indicates highs going into middle nineties.

The 00 UTC WRF-GFS forecast for precipitation during next seven days (above) indicates almost nothing for Arizona and New Mexico.

The current seasonal outlooks from NWS Climate Prediction Center (above and below) call for continued above normal temperatures, but with equal chances for above or below normal precipitation. The precipitation outlook is essentially for July, since May and June are typically very dry across the Southwest  (see second below - plot of precipitation averages for airport).

The US drought monitor (below) indicates persistent drought continuing for most of the western half of the country.
