Wow. And we're still having highs in the 90s here.

Cold and rainy. It feels like fall but it will be near 90 F by this weekend.

We'll have the tail end of a Pacific hurricane coming up through here early next week and with that some forecasted rain and a change in the weather. Highs henceforth only in the low to mid-80s and overnight lows in the mid-60s.

It's that time of year. I get to bring out my comfy long sleeved t-shirts. I flip the t-stat to 'heat' before bed and forget to set it back to 'cool' until it's uncomfortably hot the next afternoon. Mrs FredS has jackets and sweaters in two houses, two cars, two offices, her friends shop, and probably at church, as she leaves in the morning wearing one and returns in the evening sans jacket after leaving it someplace.

The forecast is that our little corner of the Sonoran Desert is going to take a direct hit from the remnants of the East Pacific hurricane Rosa...

Issued: 2:14 AM Sep. 29, 2018 – National Weather Service

"The main hazard expected from Rosa or its remnants is very heavy
rainfall in Baja California, northwestern Mexico, and the Desert
Southwest. These rains are expected to produce life-threatening
flash flooding and debris flow in the deserts, and landslides in
mountainous terrain."

Wish more of that rain would make it a little further north...
Our best chance for “showers” is mid week.

The weather has been lovely here, but we sure could use some rain.

Cooling off---last night at an outdoor concert was the first time I put on a sweat shirt this season. Rain possible early in the week.

Getting pummeled by the outer bands of eastern Pacific Hurricane (which is now a tropical storm) Rosa. 3 inches of rain in just one hour. And its only begun. What will tonight & tomorrow bring? 8O Biblical rainfall in an ordinarily dry place. And fat, swollen to the gills Saguaro Cactus.

My house is slab on grade. I have to expect my feet getting wet, getting up to pee at night. Expect the worst. Hope for the best. Par for the course in this world.

This tropical storm Rosa is surely breaking the back of summer. After it moves through we see only low 80s for highs and down into the upper 50s at night. Good sleeping weather at night, with the windows open, listening to the gathering choruses of coyotes. There will be lots of rabbitts with all this rain, and coyotes will come from far and near.

Big change.

I measured a total of 6 inches of rain here since Sunday afternoon, all thanks to eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Rosa. 3 inch downpour Sunday evening and a 3 inch, all night rain last night.

To put that in perspective, there are some years when the total annual rainfall is less than 6 inches. Add to this the 5 inches of rain we got in July, we've had 11 inches in three months.

There will be a gazillion rabbitts soon, and after them, all the coyotes from far and near.

Here's a screenshot from WeatherUnderground of total rainfall from Sept 30 through Oct 2. Ajo is the + with a circle around it. With the 5 inches in July, that's 11 inches in just three months.

I did some math. With this huge rainfall, 5,005,963,636 pounds of water fell on our tiny 6 square mile town.
