Drought Starting to Show Up...

Moderate drought showing up along the central and northern Front Range.  Big surprise right?  The fires that we've seen, the extremely dry September, the record warmth, have all lead to where we are.  The problem?  It is only going to get worse.  You've heard me talk a lot about how this would likely be a very dry Fall, Winter, and possibly Spring.  The signals that I have previously discussed are still there, and likely not going to change for months.

La Nina Update

 All that blue shading in the central Pacific Ocean reflects sea surface temperatures that are 2 to 4 degrees C below normal.  La Nina usually breeds drought around here, and it will remain a big contributor to the problem.  I won't bore you with the details that I have discussed previously, but wanted to let you all know that nothing has changed recently.
