Warmer Then Cooler And Wetter

5/9/23 Tuesday 8 am

Warm spring temperatures will return today and tomorrow before a system moves through bringing mountain snow and light rain to the forecast area late Wednesday and Thursday. I don’t expect this to be that big of a deal but it will be a nice change.

The outlook for the weekend is mixed, however, the extended models are beginning to suggest the last half of May and most of June may be anomalously wet. Because May and June are our driest months this would be a great way to kick off summer and provide us with some moisture before the rainy season begins!

Here are the latest European extended model runs showing the positive anomalies for precipitation and negative temperature anomalies.

Precipitation (departure from average)

Through June 8th

Through June 22nd

The GFS extended model through June 12 shows an even more impressive above-average precipitation forecast.

Enjoy the warm temperatures the next couple of days!
