Looks like we’re in store for a few little flurries, but more interestingly, we could get a 5-10cm mid week next week. At least that’s what the GFS model (new link, under Weather Reports use WQC as the code) is saying in their long range forecast.

Whatever precipitation we might get it definitely looks like we’ll stay cool for most of March.

Another dry month. And on that note, I wanted to post rain stats for the past 4 December and January’s. The trend is striking.

  1. Hi Chris, on the 2nd window with the almanac info, under the high values it has some times that are ahead of the current local time. Are they in UTC?

  2. Those would be from yesterday as the almanac is actually “24hours” rather than from Midnight. I used to have “Today” and “Yesterday” there but it was just too much text to cram in the small area. I may put it back though if it’s too confusing.
