Where Did Summer Go?

Ever since that unseasonably strong storm system arrived last Friday, it hasn't quite felt like summer around here.  While temps have recovered some since the weekend, we've remained below normal this week.  In fact, the last time Colorado Springs and Pueblo cracked 80 degrees was last Thursday.  That's six days in a row where temps have remained below 80 degrees.  Pretty remarkable, especially for Pueblo.  A cool stretch like this isn't completely unheard of, though.  In August 2004, Colorado Springs spent 9 straight days below 80 degrees, including 14 out of 15 days where the mercury stayed below 80.

It looks like this current stretch of cool weather will come to and end today.  An upper-level ridge of high pressure will bring a warmer, drier airmass to the region.  This should allow daytime highs to climb into the mid-upper 80's in Colorado Springs, low-mid 90's in Pueblo, about five to eight degrees above average.  So for those of you wishing for warmer temperatures, you're in luck!

    Hey all- I was just wondering if there are any indications one way or another on whether or not El Nino is showing any signs of coming back-- I really hope so! Last year was so boring. and I know you all don't want to get paid to sit in a chair hanging out all winter waiting for something to happen when it never does without El Nino here. Please give me good news!!! Thanks!!!
