WET conditions continue but LRC predicts drier weather soon.

The next 10 days still looks wet around the Valley with 3 to 4 systems quickly pushing through the area.  They all seem "progressive" which means they won't hang around the area for any extended period of time.  Attached is a few maps of rainfall expected over the next 10 days.  It seems like a lot, especially considering how wet we have been over the last month.  In fact, lets take a look at how wet May has been!! 

Normal rainfall for May through the 28th is:     2.64" 

Rainfall this May through the 28th is:               5.12"

So, you can see how wet we have been!!  Now the attached maps show expected precip over the next 7 to 10 days.  Yes, still quite a bit BUT there are strong signals from the LRC and our medium/long range models that around June 5th we start to go into a drier and warmer pattern.  Now that doesn't mean we won't see ANY rainfall but it will be closer to "normal"   This is GREAT news for our AG community as we will benefit from the warmer 70s and 80s.   

Let's all welcome some more summer warmth as it's finally in sight.
