Spring Training

I look forward going to spring training in Arizona on March 4th to 12th. I would like to know what is predict for those date.

Whers is the Niño ?, very dry weather south newMexico and fartwe

It would be like the 6 consecutive winter warm and again another dry winter without any chance that snow falls and with bad prediction, according to your predictions. in step tx and Ciudad Juarez, when our aunts told us that before snow fell to the knees.

A case is climate change or does the US control the high pressure system in the west?

Because it is a pattern winter after winter and has this trend since the last 25 years

Snow?

The Editors's picture

We are predicting a colder-than-normal winter with above-normal precipitation and above-normal snowfall in places that usually have snow, and remember: Winter starts on Dec 21, so anything can happen. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

You blew it big time

Yes our average rainfall where I am is .08 of an inch in October. However so far this month we have gotten6.06 inches of rain and that's counting snow flurries we got on October 7 at 8:20am.
Oops!!!
Otherwise y'all are pretty close to what the weather will be

accuracy to date

The Editors's picture

…well, to date a month ago. Thanks, Bob. Keep the cards and letters coming!

Ya blew it, big time for Feburary

Y'all need to make some adjustments for the southwest. So far we have gotten 4.56 inches of precipitation and are way over what you called for February. Yes I know, Feb is normally fairly dry but not this year, its been very wet. I use 2 rain gauges, not just one. I use an electronic rain gauge and a old fashion rain gauge, both have been very very close to the same readings, less then .01 differences when they are different. When that happens, I use the lesser amount.
