La Niña - Winter in the Southwest

The following plots characterize the range of values for monthly and seasonal precipitation totals for Winter (Dec-Feb (DJF)), at four weathers stations in the Southwest (Flagstaff, AZ; Tucson, AZ, Albuquerque, NM, and El Paso, TX). The dots correspond to observed monthly and DJF precipitation for each year since 1950, color coded by the ENSO status of that year. The horizontal black lines correspond to 2017-2018 precipitation (monthly and DJF seasonal totals) at each station.
