Second Week Of May

Nice morning up in Summerhaven at 7:50 am MST this morning. At bottom is view of I-10 from Bowie, Arizona. Note the large patch of prickly pear cactus, with shadow of the instrument tower to left.

Fire weather conditions remain critical and there is a large fire burning southeast of Patagonia - fire was reported at 10,000 acres last evening, with no new updates currently. Header statement below from NWS this morning highlights the situation for next several days.

Forecasts from the 06 UTC runs of the GEFS here show the conditions for the coming week: above - no rain in sight; below - warm to hot temperatures (GEFS temperatures have a cool bias, so highs will probably top 100 F by next weekend); and wind speeds second below - strong and gusty winds continue for next couple of days.
