Southwest Climate Outlook November 2003

Date issued

When the most recent water year ended in September, the state of Arizona was in much better shape than it had been in the previous year. Perhaps surprisingly, a round of normal winter rain and snow could be enough to pull much of the state out of drought, at least in the short term. This represents a dramatic improvement over last year, when there was virtually no chance of the drought ending from winter season precipitation.
