How to Access and Use Weather Data

Successful mushroom hunting is part luck, part skill, and part research. In Arizona, the research is all about finding out where precipitation has accumulated for your best chances to find those fabulous fungi you have been dreaming about.

The thing about the southwest is that precipitation events are unpredictable and extremely variable. It is not uncommon for one side of a mountain to get totally drenched while the other side stays disappointingly dry. So, what is an eager mushroom hunter to do?

Here is your chance to learn the tools to figure out where recent rains have fallen or where the best winter snowpack accumulation in the state was last winter. 

On December 9, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. we will chat via Zoom with Andrew Taylor, Science and Operations Officer, from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service office in Flagstaff, AZ. Andrew will tell us a little bit about what he and his coworkers do and share the tools available to us for viewing and tracking recent precipitation in the region.

We'll also get an opportunity for a little Q&A to get your burning weather questions quenched.
