Weather Continued Dry and Mild

23 January 2014   Dr. Curtis James

The figure above indicates the forecasted high in orange (with error bar denoting the range of ensemble forecast members), average high for this time of year in orange (dashed line), forecasted low in blue (with error bar), average low this time of year in blue (dashed line), and forecasted wind speed in purple. Note that the wind speed forecast is sustained wind (not gusts), and it is based on only one model (not an ensemble).

Weather Discussion:

The upper-level ridge will continue its grip on the West Coast for at least another week, keeping Arizona in a dry and warmer-than-normal weather pattern.

Several disturbances moving around the ridge will bring occasional periods of light breezes and high clouds for the next week. . Precipitation is unlikely through at least next Wednesday.
