LOOK OUT FOR LOW TEMPS FROM MONDAY-THURSDAY – Possibility for freezing.
Look what popped up on the Climate Prediction Center website. They are forcasting above average precipitation chances for the month of October.
While not directly related in their discussion, the sea surface temperatures to the south and west of us are mostly, slightly elevated, along with a weak to moderate El Nino underway, could provide the moisture flow which we have awaited all summer. Unfortunately, there are are small bands of cooler water cropping up in the nearby waters. Here is the Climate Prediction Center’s animation of the whole Pacific sea surface temperatures. In the past, cold bands of water have been very effective blockers of the moisture flow. We will see. Hopefully, the warmer waters will help breakdown the persistent high pressure in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and allow storms to flow over us.
