Improving Conditions for May

After a cool and wet period for April as expected we still expect a turn toward warmer weather for May along with more normal rainfall.

The outlook for the next two weeks going into early May, rainfall is forecast to average 1-3 inches with normal being 1.75-2.00 inches so we are expecting near normal rainfall on average, see attached image. There will be periods of dry weather and wet weather over the next two weeks.

The outlook for May calls for warmer than normal weather with rainfall near normal.

We do not see any additional significant freezes going forward at this time.
