Weather for Spring and Summer Pt 1

I’m Bob Larson. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, just about everything we do revolves around it. But, one person who doesn’t care one bit about coronavirus is Mother Nature.

And, State Climatologist Nick Bond says in the foreseeable future, you can put away your sweaters …

BOND-2 = 17 … “I think there’s stronger and stronger evidence for a warm summer and just the latest clima-model runs, while we know they’re not by any means perfect, and sometimes wrong, they are showing a better chance of it being a drier than normal summer.”

But, Bond says that doesn’t mean NO rain …

BOND-3 = 20 … “We’re never, almost never get really substantial amounts of precipitation, but sometimes even a little bit can keep the landscape a little bit more moist and avoid the fires. And, from a dry land agriculture point of view, I’m sure if you can get your pastures and a few rains in there, they’re going to do a lot better.”

Bottom line, Bond says it should be warm …

BOND-4 = 13 … “Summer is going to be a reality. Last year we, you know, after two years with a lot of fires, last summer was on the mild side, but it’s not looking that way this time.”

Tune in tomorrow for more on the weather outlook for our COVID-19 summer.
