Extended Forecast

Things are going to dry out over the weekend but I do not believe this will be the last raindrops that fall in September.

This storm is going to have quite an effect on our anomalies for the next 4 to 6 weeks.

Here are the forecasted positive precipitation anomalies through October 20th.

Here they are through November 3rd

Here is the total snowfall (before melting) through October 20th
