The endless chatter of weather.

That was some thunder last night. The windows here rattled quite a few times. It was certainly more impressive than my 0.56" of rain, but that rain has me at 12.98" for the year. That's what I finished last year with. These last 3 years have got to be the wettest drought on record. :-k

.75" for our neighborhood rain gauge and 3.43" over the past thirty days. For the year we are at 13.2" in (almost) Oro Valley.

:lol: I'm now at 13.32 inches for 2019, and I had 11.48 in 2018 and 11.08 in 2017. Nothing too far from what you would expect. That really was some good window rattling thunder in the night. I loved it! :)

Winter is now officially underway, but it came a month early to NJ. We've already had over two feet of snow and a couple ice storms starting a week before Thanksgiving, and we've had four unbroken weeks of January-like temperatures. Although a few milder days are forecast, I fear we're in for a nasty, cold winter.

It got up to 36F today, which felt like spring.

I don't think Phoenix exceeded 115 degrees this summer. It was cool this year.

It was cool throughout my Thanksgiving visit this year. Phoenix, Flagstaff and Tucson all seemed uniformly cooler than usual.

The percentages are leaning toward a wet Christmas (week).

just for Jim we tell all of the other tourists about the dry heat here as we had only 2 days of 115F at the airport but those other 27 days between 110F-115F make little difference as that's just plain hot aka welcome to the surface of the sun hot.

think snow as several years of record snowpack would be very nice!

:D 4 of my kids 5 snow days built into the school year have already been used for the year and their last snow day of the last school year was May 21st the day before the last day of school. Her school is notorious for not using snow days even when the other districts in the Springs close. So this definitely anecdotally makes me believe in Global warming. We didin’t even make it a total of 5 months between snow this year.

Wow, that's not many for the kind of weather you get. Our district does a lot of delayed openings to minimize snow days, but there are still so many of them that the school year often runs from Labor Day to the second half of June. A few years ago, graduation was on June 26.

Woke up to rain this morning in Cave Creek as I suppose most people in the valley did. Went out on our patio with coffee and the clouds were rolling over the edge of New River Mesa. Very pretty. Merry Christmas to everyone from the SloFolks.

If you actually enjoy reading this thread, here's a treasure trove of spank bank material that will provide days of stimulation and excitement.

Well, at least a few minutes. Apparently I experienced 1/4 of the annual precipitation during my November visit. I'm just glad it didn't happen in March, for my 8 days in the Grand Canyon.

I was surprised that precipitation didn't come first, because it seems like bigger story for last year than the temperature.
