The 2002-2003 water year began on October 1, 2002; temperature shown in Figures 1a-b are based on
the first 16 days of the new water year. Temperatures for the new water year and for the previous 28-days (Figures 1a
and 1c) have been much closer to average in southern Arizona and New Mexico than during previous months but
remain below average in parts of northern Arizona and New Mexico. In the past 28 days, average temperatures have
cooled by about 10°F in the Southwest. Phoenix and southwestern Arizona continue to stand out in the region for
having the most above average temperatures for the period.
