PM Update: Work week off to wet start
Rainy into evening; Patchy drizzle on Tuesday
As Jason Samenow mentioned this morning, we're back into a damp and dreary stretch, and it looks like it lasts most of the week. Cloudy skies of this morning eventually brought light rain to much of the area, which will continue at times into the evening. Highs near 50 occurred late morning most spots before rain knocked pretty much everyone back into the upper 40s. A wind from the north and east has added to the rawness by lowering wind chills near 40 at times.
Through Tonight: The worst of the rain should wind down this evening, but scattered showers or drizzle are possible through the night. Additional rainfall should generally be light as low pressure lifts northeast and away from the area. Temperatures slowly drop to the mid-40s, maybe some low 40s.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): There could be a few showers still around in the morning. Otherwise, we're cloudy with some drizzle possible throughout the day. Highs should make the low, perhaps middle, 50s. Winds will be light from the north.
Snow politics: Arizona Senator John McCain is threatening to block confirmation of USDA nominees if the U.S. Forest Service refuses to allow Arizona Snowbowl's request to use snowmaking equipment fed by treated wastewater. The Forest Service says the plan is moving forward, albeit slowly. According to Forest Service parent, the Department of Agriculture, slowness is due to attempts to forge a compromise because several Native American tribes have voiced discontent because some consider the mountain sacred.
