Weather Trends

The crazy summer weather continues depending on where you live.

It may be cool and wet or hot and dry. And those in the middle have a little of both.

Things have finally dried out just a touch here in Colorado and the Denver area, but the temperatures are still nice with mostly 80s.

The latest info from the climate prediction center is forecasting above normal temperatures along the western slope of the Rockies July 18-19 and again around the 23-25.

This includes the states of Utah and Idaho.

Heavy rains are possible along the Gulf Coast over the coming weekend, especially in the Florida panhandle.

There are a few really dry pockets that having increasing drought threats, including portions of California, northwest Nevada, northwest Montana, southeast New Mexico, southern Texas, and east-central Minnesota into central and northern Wisconsin.

The long-term trend over the next 14 days is calling for above normal precipitation along the entire eastern seaboard, and across the southern Rockies as the annual summer monsoon fires up.

Drier than normal conditions are forecasted for the west coast and along the US/Canada line.
