Some thoughts about the Payson Weather

November 1st, 2017 by Carolyn Stanley & Tim Ehrhardt

October was a very dry month in Payson and throughout Arizona. According to the National Weather Service in Flagstaff, Payson received just .01″ of rain which was the 7th driest October on record. Many cities in Arizona received no rain during the month of October. Temperatures were also above normal.

I haven’t had an overnight freeze at my house yet and I am at 6,000 feet which is about 1,000 feet higher than Payson. I can’t remember that happening. Every year seems to be different here, when it comes to weather. This one is no different. What will the rest of fall and winter hold for us? We’ll find out soon enough.

(It’s worth noting that despite the dryness it is still gorgeous here and the weather has still been very nice.)

A wet winter in Rim Country is getting wetter, as the first of an expected series of three winter storms have arrived in Payson today. A Winter Storm Warning went into effect at Noon today and is currently in place until Noon on Saturday.

Payson sits at 5,000 feet elevation and is expected to receive far less snow than higher elevations in Rim Country. Pine, at 5,600 feet elevation, and Christopher Creek, at 6,300 feet elevation, are expected over a foot of snow by Saturday Payson is forecast to receive just 2-3 inches of snow during that time, with mostly rain instead.

The first two systems are expected to pass through by Saturday night, with a third system arriving on Monday.

The National Weather Service is my favorite website for weather forecasts, with point specific forecasts. You can take a look at it for Payson, here. For weather radar, I like Intellicast.

Carolyn and I are still working hard. We already have plans to show homes to at least one client in Payson on Saturday.

Wintry Weather in Rim Country

January 1st, 2017 by Carolyn Stanley & Tim Ehrhardt

We hSnow Flocked Trees North of Payson, Arizonaave a mix of rain and snow in Rim Country today. I live at 6,000 feet elevation outside of Payson, Arizona, close to the Mogollon Rim. While it has been periodically raining the past two days, the precipitation finally turned to snow early this morning. The trees are now flocked with snow. The ground is mostly covered with it, though with a wet layer of moisture underneath. I have a fire going in my woodstove and it is cozy inside of my house.

As I understand it, and see from radar, it is raining in Payson, not snowing. This is not unusual. Payson it is at only 5,000 feet elevation and the 1,000 foot difference in elevation, as well as proximity to the Mogollon Rim, can make a big difference when it comes to moisture.

It should be noted that it’s not always this way this time of year. One year ago I began 2016 by hiking to the top of a white quartz bluff above Highway 260, just east of Little Green Valley. Wonderful contrasts, in a region full of them.
