Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Monday, June 29, 2015
Normal thunderstorm activity is in the area each afternoon through next week, (very benign pattern) with very warm temperatures as a very persistent high pressure ridge over the intermountain west leaves Colorado under a northwest flow aloft. Mainly afternoon thunderstorms increase Wednesday and Thursday. CM

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.

It looks like a strong El Nino will be in effect this fall and winter, and is already present now. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US (winter). We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
