June to Sept temps

The 86 degree average that you see applies to the entire region, and it is the average; not the spot-on exact temp for every square inch of the region. Thanks for asking!

desert southwest temperature forecasts

i think you might want to differentiate between to igh, middle & lower desert in your future almanacs.

No Rain or Snow in AZ

Worst Winter for precip I have seen in years in AZ, complete opposite of last year .... Bummed....

baloney

farmers almanac does not account for CLIMATE CHANGE. we are seeing zero precipitation here in new mexico. we live on a warming planet where predicting the climate is very unpredictable.

Moisture

Your forecast says we get cold and moisture. We have gotten neither. Warmer then normal. In the 60s in the afternoons. Haven't had a drop of moisture since October. I do believe your predictions are a wee bit off.

Thank you for telling us so kindly and gently. We do hope that you get the weather you want!

Weather

I am in thermal Ca, near Indio. It is so hot here. Been in the mid 90’s all February and most of January too. Desperately need rain. Hope we get some of the farmers almanac weather cause it already feels like summer

Where's the moisture?

Rocida area very dry, may not be a very pretty veiw this summer. I hope the ranchers don't have to haul water again this year, to their cattle.

It appears the Farmer's

It appears the Farmer's Almanac weather forecast is a tad off, at least for this bone dry and very hot city of Phoenix. With a forecast high of 90 on February 8, this is quite distressing. I hope everything changes to cooler and wetter weather soon.
