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.

The Editors's picture

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.

Driest winter in a very long time.

We have had little to no snow here. In New Mexico.its been the driest Ive ever known.are we going to get any rain.or snow soon.its already fire season...

Totally dry in New Mexico

I agree--over the past five months, I have received a grand total of less than 1 inch of rain at my house. I didn't garden last summer and won't do so this summer, either--too much pressure on the well. It has been dreadful. No monsoons at my location last summer, either.

So very sad

ABSOLUTELY minimal snow in Los Ojos, NM. Going to be a very long fire season if this dry winter continues.
