Good Friday morning!  I hope your week has gone great.  At least the weather has been pretty good over the past couple of days.  We have had to deal with the wind, but at least it will get a little bit better.  I am hoping to get a few things done outside today before I have to head to work.  In fact, I would like to start to dig into the boat and start getting it ready for the season, we shall see.  Temperatures will be cooler today, but still not a bad day.

Temperatures will warm up even a little more on Saturday out ahead of our next system working in late Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday 500

You can see the weak wave spinning out across Arizona and New Mexico.  However, still strong enough to give us showers and thunderstorms.  This is right on track with the Heady Pattern.  We have been in a 49.5 day cycle since about July 15th of 2015.  We will switch into a new cycle here in about 10 weeks, but we still have a ways to go.  This will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms on Sunday.

Some of these could be strong, but the severe risk is low right now.  These will continue into Monday morning and then shift south.

Monday AM precip

I will keep you updated!
