Tuesday May 17: More typical May pattern is expected over the next two weeks (more sunshine, less rain). Light rain/showers will develop after 5:00am Wednesday morning, then isolated-scattered showers on Thursday. Total rainfall Wed/Thur less than 1/4". No wind concerns (mostly 10 mph or less). Looking dry Fri-Sun for a change. It seemed every weekend over the past 45 days had rain.
We're now at 37.49"of precipitation since the start of the water year on Oct 1. Normal to date is exactly 40", so we've made incredible progress since the water faucet opened back up on April 2. Our region of the snow pack is at 146% of average!
For June, odds favor near normal temperatures and below normal rainfall (as a whole). July and August have higher probabilities for above normal temps and below normal rainfall. This doesn't mean we'll have an excessively hot summer, just that overall temps are expected to be warmer as a whole (even if just by one degree).
