Weather Outlook for Friday

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 07:53:00 EDT
The major system to impact the United States the next couple of days will be an upper trof amplifying across the Eastern Gulf Coast. Ample moisture is forecast to surge northward ahead of the developing system which will set the stages for heavy rainfall across the Southeastern U.S. Another system will affect the Four Corners Region and Southern High Plains. Broad ascent ahead of the upper trof combined with moisture returning from the Western Gulf should keep unsettled conditions in the forecast. A Pacific system currently migrating into the Upper Intermountain West will continue tracking due east reaching the Northern High Plains by late Friday night. Conditions across the northeastern section of the country should be rather quiet as a surface ridge remains centered over the region.

Storms Ease Western Drought But Much More Precipitation Needed

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 12:18:20 EDT
Drought eased in some areas but encroached into others in the four weeks ending March 4, resulting in a slight overall reduction, to 35.85 percent of the 48 contiguous states, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Storms in late February and early March rolled the portion of California in extreme to exceptional drought (D3-D4) back to 65.89 percent of the state by March 4, from 73.83 percent a week earlier. A blockbuster storm struck California as the calendar turned from February to March, averting a record-breaking season for dryness. The potent storm and a weaker, initial system accounted for more than 75 percent of the season-to-date precipitation in California locations such as Burbank (4.78 of 5.28 inches), downtown Los Angeles (4.52 of 5.72 inches), Camarillo (3.66 of 4.85 inches), and Sandberg (3.04 of 3.93 inches).
