Whether we like to admit it or not, ski season in North America is coming to a close. April is here and most ski resorts close in April and May on our continent. Knowing that, we’d like to see it end with a bang. Unseasonably cold temperatures and big snowfalls are most welcome in April and early May in all ski towns.
NOAA just released their April, May, June forecast for temperature and precipitation and it’s nothing to write home about. The entire West Coast and all of Alaska is forecasted to have above average temperatures this spring. Montana is expected to stay cold through the end of the season. They’re having a great season up there.
Precipitation is forecasted to be below average on the West Coast and SE Alaska. Precipitation is forecast to be above average NOWHERE in the USA.
Is it time to start thinking about the Southern Hemisphere winter?
