Moisture Prospects Week of January 27

For the drought-partched central U.S., the moisture prospects significantly improve next week. How much moisture we will get depends on which model you prefer

The European model shows widespread rainfall just about everywhere except west Tcxas but amounts are light. These total for the next ten days.

The U.S. GFS is heaviest in many areas due to the model creating a stronger storm than the European. This data is valid from Monday, 28th to February 4th.

Note the differing scales between the two models.


  1. I'd like to see some purples and reds over the CO Rockies - our snow pack is currently 60-70% of normal. This means we are getting to the point where Old Man Winter is going to have to defy climatology in order for the pack to get near normal.

  2. Brian,

    The daytime models today look "wetter" than last night's. I think Colorado's mountains will receive significant moisture next with one and, maybe, two storms.

    Thanks for the comment.
