Weather Withdrawal

The pendulum has swung back and once again we find ourselves in a boring weather pattern. Sure, the higher elevations will get some pop-up high elevation heat-based thunderstorms during the afternoons, but for the most part it looks like a boring week ahead for most of us.

The only thing on the horizon is a trough of low pressure that will come on shore on the west coast this week. The models are not in agreement how far south the low will be when it passes. The Euro is showing it dipping just far enough south to increase instability and cause some showers over the weekend. The GFS currently shows the low heading further north with very low chances of precipitation in the area.

I have not been posting about Hurricane Sally. There seems to be a heightened sense of awareness on this very dangerous storm. The biggest news will be the flooding. This storm is going to run into an atmospheric wall and will likely stall out, bringing areas between New Orleans and Gulfport, MS a tremendous amount of rain. 12-20″ will be possible in some areas.

BTW it looks like the rollover crash south of Ouray will keep 550 closed for quite a while this morning. Those planning on driving through that area should monitor CDOT.

Thanks for following, next update later this week unless something significant develops!
