Chilly, Stormy Pattern to Continue Through April


Naturally one of the strongest winter (or spring now?) storms of the season strikes the Northwest, and I’m in Montana/Wyoming visiting my grandparents looking at gray skies and a soggy ground. Not great timing. But that’s OK I suppose. A little bit of snow is forecasted while I’m here 😉

So how long will this stormy period last? A while, unfortunately. Climatology (and long range data) suggests a colder, stormier April than usual with the significantly warm episodes like last Wednesday much less frequent. El Nino springs typically end up being chilly and wet, and this will also help in last minute snow pack build up.

I know…I’m kinda disappointed too. In the mean time, get ready for unstable conditions today with some thundershowers/heavy downpours occurring throughout the afternoon. The rest of the week will feature the familiar cloudy skies and periods of heavy rain.

Hold on to your umbrellas, Kitsapers! Summer will be here before ya know it 😉

  1. Thanks for keeping us in the know even while on spring break.
    I heard the good news about the early MTC arrival.
    Good for you.
    Enjoy Y-O!

  2. You’re welcome, Charley! And thanks for the congrats! Isn’t it crazy—I’ll enter the MTC a day before my 19th b’day, so technically I will be 18 in the MTC 😉 I’m a rebel!

    BTW, you 3rd warders, sneak on over to 6th ward on April 25th for my farewell! I’d love to see you guys!!!
