La Mesa Considerably Warmer, Dryer in January

There was no sign of Friday morning's light rain on the 490+ stairs ascending through the Windsor Hills neighborhoods of La Mesa on February 1st.

Yet again, another dry month for the region, already prompting discussions of water rationing statewide. As January and February are historically our wettest months, we’re not positioned well for a strong year of rainfall. Comparatively, January 2013 saw 1.23 inches, while its 2014 counterpart just 0.07 inches.

The first week of February should offer renewed hope for desperately needed rainfall to the region, with daytime high temperatures in the low 60s and overnight lows in the upper 40s.

Not so “super” a Sunday for Punxsutawney Phil, who will be extracted from his burrow on February 2nd to prognosticate on the arrival of spring conditions. Surely most residents east of the Rockies will be hoping for an early thaw. Check out the latest details at Groundhog.org.
