Things will continue to dry out around here with little (if any) precipitation being confined to the highest elevations and the spine of the divide.
There are some indications that mid-to-late next week another one of those low-pressure systems will move in from the west and bring a better chance of scattered showers.
Looking at the extended period, it looks less likely that we will experience a “Junesoon” this year. As I have said over the last couple of months, I do expect an above-average monsoon this year, however, I expect it to start later than last year, and later than average. So we are more than likely looking at a start during the last half of July, perhaps even the last 10 days of July.
Also, I expect an increase in tropical activity in EPAC. We have not seen a tropically active Eastern Pacific for 7 years. The heaviest rain events (the historical events) in SW Colorado occurred when an Eastern Pacific Hurricane recurved and sent a remnant low-pressure system over SW Colorado. So as the season goes on I will be monitoring the tropical activity (as I always do).
