Spring/Summer 2020 Medium & Long Range Discussion

Recommended Posts

I was just looking back through the forums and realized that, surprisingly, this thread hasn't been made yet. So yeah the next 7-10 days look consistently wet and in the 40's and 50's. Just my favorite type of weather /s. At least it will hopefully help green the bushes and trees up.

Yeah we usually just throw the spring and summer discussion into the monthly threads. 

Oh... Sorry.

No need to apologize.  Generally speaking, I'm not going to shut down a thread unless it's a duplicate.  There is a purpose for a longer range thread like this to be able discuss what is coming in the weeks/months ahead.  It may just move more slowly than the winter medium/long range thread because of the different dynamics (not dynamics in the meteorological sense lol) involved between user interest in winter vs warm season things.

looking like a trend to a weak la nina as summer goes on and atlantic/gom temps are above average.   Wonder if we will have a couple tropical systems impact the midwest

May 3-10 or so looks like it could be very cool for the time of year, especially in the eastern part of the subforum

Yeah can we not? Like seriously I don't want to see snow in freaking may. Plus everything is finally greening up nicely and I don't want a hard frost to set everything back again.

Bring on the May 1997 analog! :devilsmiley:

Models are all showing the cold pattern finally ending over the next few days.  Warmth moves in Thursday and stays for good.  The GFS has 80s here next week and the Euro is well into the 70s as well by late this week.  The pattern may also become pretty stormy.  The euro has 2-5" of rain across Iowa from day 4-7, extending eastward into the lakes as well.

Let’s go! A humid evening watching the day fade away is long overdue

Very excited for all of this.

Low to mid 90s for central/southern MN on the Euro around day 10.  Most of the sub only makes it to the low to mid 80s though.

Still, I loathe these 30+ degree "flips" in high temps. Every spring seems to go this way as of late.

On a side note, we're seeing some pretty impressive sub-surface cooling across the ENSO regions which continue to make there way to the surface thanks to an eastward propagating oceanic Kelvin wave. Looks like another strong easterly wind burst is on the way and if this persists through-out the month and into June, it'll aide in the rapid development of a La Nina. If we transition into a La Nina much sooner rather than later, we could be looking at a warm summer across much of the region along with a potentially active hurricane season. Let's see!

While there will be significant warming into the weekend for our eastern members, models have shown a trend toward merging the subtropical system and the upper midwest system as they reach the mid-Atlantic region, where it parks for a while next week and cools the temp somewhat for our far eastern members.

The euro is cutting off the eastern upper low farther west every run.

GFS, as well. Both 00z runs linger it through near the end of next week.

The Euro now has the cool pool from the eastern cutoff low dominating the subforum region through next week.  The 80s and humidity are gone, even for Iowa.  Now it's low 70s with 50s dews.

It is now getting to the time of the year that below climo is not a bad thing, as long as it's not 25° below climo!
