The big question around Northern Arizona lately is, where’s the snow? The National Weather Service says a weak ridge of high pressure has been above the southwest since about late September, keeping storms to the north and temperatures mild. Weather Service chief meteorologist Brian Klimowski says we are currently in a “weak La Nina” weather pattern which typically means warmer winters and lighter measurements of precipitation. However, last year was a wet winter and we were also in the same weak La Nina pattern. For those wanting snow for Thanksgiving, Kimowski says “we can look out to about two weeks with some confidence and we don’t see any significant precipitation through much of the rest of November.” For those wanting snow, don’t worry. Klimowski says Flagstaff averages its first snowfall on November 11th. He says normally the first measurable snow doesn’t usually fall until Thanksgiving.
