NWS SE CO 2013-1014 Climate Review

Winter 2013-14 Climate Review and Spring Preview

Meteorological Winter of 2014 (December of 2013 through February of 2014) was one for the record books across portions of the central and eastern United States. However, across much of south central and southeast Colorado, the winter as a whole was generally at or slightly below normal for both temperatures and precipitation. Notable exceptions are across southwestern Colorado, which saw above normal temperatures and well below normal precipitation, along with portions of the central mountains, which saw well above normal precipitation. The following graphics depict departures from normal values for both temperature and precipitation across the state for the Winter Season of 2014.  

In Alamosa, the average temperature through the Winter of 2014 was 15.5 degrees. This is 3.5 degrees below the seasonal average and makes the Winter of 2014 the 18th coldest on record in Alamosa, though well above the average winter temperature of 7.0 degrees recorded through the Winter of 1992. Last winter, the average temperature was 12.4 degrees. However, this does not tell the whole story, as December 2013 and January 2014 were well below normal temperature wise in Alamosa, as early season snow pack kept a cold airmass trapped in the valley, before a much warmer than normal February helped to temper the cold start to the winter. Alamosa only recorded 0.26 inches of precipitation through the Winter of 2014. This is 0.58 inches below normal and makes the Winter of 2014 tied with the Winter of 1951 as the 10th driest on record, though well above the 0.08 inches recorded through the Winter of 1999. Alamosa also tallied 6.5 inches of snow throughout the winter season. This is 5.8 inches below normal and makes the Winter of 2014 the 12th least snowiest on record, though well ahead of the 1.6 inches of snow recorded through the Winter of 1935. Again, this does not tell the whole story, as November of 2013 was the wettest and 3rd snowiest November on record, with 1.63 inches of precipitation and 18.1 inches of snow tallied through the month.

 

 

 

In Colorado Springs, the average temperature through the Winter of 2014 was 30.1 degrees, which is 0.8 degrees below the seasonal average, but well above the 22.8 degrees recorded through the Winter of 1899. Last year, the average temperature throughout the winter was 30.2 degrees. Colorado Springs recorded 0.96 inches of precipitation and 19.1 inches of snow throughout the winter, which is 0.04 inches below normal and 2.9 inches above normal, respectively. Much of this precipitation (0.67 inches and 13.6 inches of snow) was tallied in January, which was the 9th wettest and 3rd snowiest January on record in Colorado Springs.

 

 

 

In Pueblo, the average temperature through the Winter of 2014 was 31.2 degrees, which is 0.3 degrees below the seasonal average, but well above the 23.9 degrees recorded through the Winter of 1899. Last year, the average temperature throughout the winter was 30.4 degrees. Pueblo recorded 0.76 inches of precipitation and 14.9 inches of snow throughout the winter, which is 0.23 inches and 0.9 inches below normal, respectively.

Above Normal Precipitation in 2013

2013 provided above normal precipitation for many areas of the lower 48 with the exception being the west coast.  While CA had the driest year on record most states east of the Rocky Mountains received well above normal precipitation.  See map above.

Cold across the middle US, Widespread snow,ice,rains across the country

***Arctic chill continues over the Upper Midwest***

***Widespread showers and snow for the Western U.S.***

***More snow for the Central and Eastern states***

The extremely cold temperatures continue like a broken record across the
Northern Plains, Upper Midwest, and Great Lakes, which has been the case
for much of the winter. A ruthless supply of frigid temperatures will
continue to be ushered southward with a 1040+ mb surface high that
originated over the Northwest Territories of Canada. This will basically
equate to highs in the single digits and teens, and subzero lows. These
will be some of the coldest March temperatures ever observed over this
region!

The Western U.S. will remain active over the next two days with sustained
westerly flow from the Pacific Ocean along with a stationary surface front
from the Washington coast to Colorado. Mainly scattered showers and
mountain snow showers can be expected, with some locally concentrated
areas of moderate to heavy snow where forcing is best. The rainfall will
be abating for California after the recent round of heavy rain and
mountain snow, with some scattered showers remaining.

The big storm system that recently affected the West Coast is now emerging
over the Great Plains and is expected to make weather headlines over the
next few days. The shortwave energy aloft, along with an enormous
temperature contrast from north to south, will result in a couple waves of
low pressure that will develop along an impressive Arctic front.
Widespread snow and mixed precipitation is forecast from the Central
Plains to the Mid-Atlantic, where numerous winter storm watches and
warnings are already in effect. Severe weather is a possibility from
eastern Texas to the Deep South as Gulf moisture and instability gets
advected northward towards the surface low.

Major storm to impact Western US

…Heavy rain possible over parts of Southern California…

…Temperatures will be 20 to 40 degrees below average over parts of the
Upper Midwest…

…Temperatures will be 20 to near 30 degrees below average over part of
the Mid-Atlantic into the Lower Great Lakes/Southern New England…

A deep closed upper-level low over the Eastern Pacific will move inland
over California by Saturday evening. The system will stream moisture from
the Pacific into California producing moderate to heavy rain over parts of
Southern/Central California on Friday waning to light rain by Saturday
evening. In addition, moderate snow will develop over parts of the
Sierras also on Friday. Rain will also move into the Southwest by Friday
evening and into parts of the Southern Rockies by Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, a front extending from the Northern Plains to parts of the
Northern High Plains will move Southeastward to the Lower Great Lakes to
the Southern plains by Saturday. An area of snow will develop over parts
of the Upper Great Lakes to the Middle Mississippi Valley, on Friday
afternoon, moving to the Lower Great Lakes/Northeast by Saturday evening.
Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will move northward over parts of the
Southern Plains/Lower Mississippi Valley producing rain with embedded
thunderstorms on Friday. The moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will
continue to move northward over the Plains/Mississippi Valley on Saturday
overrunning the front producing snow from the Central Plains eastward to
parts of the Ohio Valley/Great Lakes by Saturday evening. Also, an area
of sleet/freezing rain will develop over parts of the Middle Mississippi
Valley on Saturday evening.

Elsewhere, Cold high pressure over Western Canada will aid in producing
upslope flow over the Northern/Central Rockies through Saturday evening
that will develop snow over the area through Saturday night.

Colorado Snow Pack

Snow has been abundant over northern Colorado this winter season so far with snow pack in the mountains well above normal.  The statewide snow pack is at 115% with the highest above normal in the South Platte River basin which is currently 145% of normal. The upper Rio Grande River currently has the lowest snow pack in the state at 83% of normal.  With an active weather pattern expected to continue through the spring additional snows will pile up and make for a good spring and summer runoff.  The whitewater rafting this spring should be great and the skiing and snowboarding will continue to be outstanding int eh coming weeks.  Above is a state map of the snow pack and can also be found by clicking here.

 

Rain/Snow Pacific NW, More Snow Great Lakes region, Shwrs South

***Wintry weather for the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic Monday night***

***Warming trend for areas east of the Rockies this week***

***Rain and mountain snow continues for the Pacific Northwest***

A zonal flow pattern across the continental U.S. will allow for a quick
progression of weak weather disturbances across the nation for the first
half of the work week. The bitterly cold weather that has plagued much of
the northern U.S. appears to be retreating northward into Canada with more
seasonal conditions expected over the next few days. Temperatures are
expected to warm to above average levels for late February from the
Central Plains to the East Coast as upper level ridging develops.
Southern Texas, which should remain within the warm sector of systems
passing by to its north, is expected to be the warmest nationwide with
highs expected well into the 80s.

Over the Southern Plains, the next surface low is forecast to take shape
and move towards the lower Great Lakes by Monday night. This is expected
to bring mainly light to moderate snow from the Upper Midwest to the Great
Lakes and northern Mid-Atlantic States, with showers likely for portions
of the lower to mid Mississippi Valley and the Deep South. A mixture of
light sleet and freezing rain is possible from northern Missouri to near
the Ohio River.

Out West, sustained moisture flow and frontal passages from the Pacific
are expected to keep conditions unsettled across the Northwest and the
northern Continental Divide with widespread light to moderate
precipitation through Tuesday. Most of the precipitation should be in the
form of rain in lower elevations and snowfall for the higher elevations.

Snow and Ice Devastate SE US

Major ice and snow storm has pummeled the SE with heavy snows inland over the Appalachians.  Ice accumulations have made travel difficult if not impossible for many in Georgia, S Carolina and N Carolina.  Snow now being measured over a foot in some locations  of W Virginia, Kentucky and N Carolina will track up into New England today and tonight.  Below are some of the NWS storm reports from teh SE:

Colder across the middle US, rains south.

…A major winter storm will affect the Lower Mississippi Valley and
southeastern U.S. through mid-week…

…More heavy rain/snow expected across the Pacific Northwest…
The second week of February will be quite active with another round of
wintry precipitation forecast across the southern tier of the country this
week. A frontal boundary sinking southward into the northern Gulf of
Mexico will allow northerly flow to persist along the Gulf Coast. This
will ultimately draw cool Canadian air from the dome of high pressure to
the north which should bring readings to near the freezing mark. With the
sub-freezing air in place, a series of mid-level impulses will cross
overhead resulting in precipitation which should spread from west to east
across the Deep South. What will complicate matters is a tongue of warmer
air just above the surface layer should lead to a mixture of freezing rain
and sleet. This region of mixed wintry precipitation will focus along the
rain/snow line with fairly extensive ice accumulations being forecast by
the WPC winter weather desk. Through Wednesday evening, the current
forecast depicts anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of snow from northern
Mississippi eastward into much of North Carolina. A localized heavier axis
is possible along upslope regions of the Southern Appalachians.
Additionally, bounding this area of snow to the south will be sufficiently
high ice accumulations extending from northern Louisiana through central
portions of the southern states into the southeastern U.S. coast. The
current maxima is expected from eastern Georgia into central South
Carolina with 0.50 to 0.75 inches of ice possible. Of course any
measurable ice will make travel hazardous. For the latest information on
this winter storm, please visit your local forecast office at
www.weather.gov.

The other major weather maker during this period will be the unsettled
conditions across the Pacific Northwest and into the Upper Intermountain
West. The flow aloft will be zonal which will carry a series of
disturbances toward the western U.S. Onshore flow directed perpendicular
to the local terrain will aid in moderate to heavy orographic
precipitation, much in the form of snow. During the next couple of days,
expect 1 to 2 feet of snowfall accumulations across the Washington
Cascades, Bitterroots, Sawtooth, and Tetons. Unlike previous systems
affecting the western states, the snow levels will be much higher which
will keep coastal locations as rain.

Elsewhere, a progressive system swinging through the Northern Plains and
Upper Midwest will carry a swath of snow along the associated cold front.
As much of the gulf moisture should be directed at the system across the
southern U.S., general snowfall amounts should be light with only 2 to 4
inches expected with isolated heavier amounts.

Rain Calif, Snow NW and Rocky Mtns, Snow NE

***Active weather pattern will continue for the Western U.S.***

***Periods of light snow from the Midwest to the Northeast***

***Snow and a wintry mix for the south-central U.S.***

The weather remains active across the western part of the country.
Persistent flow from the Pacific Ocean interacting with shortwave energy
aloft and a surface frontal boundary draped across the Inter-Mountain West
has resulted in widespread precipitation over the past few days. For the
beginning of the work week, expect additional rounds of rain and heavy
mountain snow from central California to the Colorado Rockies, and
extending northward to the Canadian border.

Across the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, and the Northeast, periods of light
snow will be possible with a series of weak systems quickly moving through
the region. Limited moisture and the quick progression of these systems
should keep snowfall amounts in check. It will continue to remain
bitterly cold for the Northern Plains and eastward to the Great Lakes,
which have much more ice cover than normal.

Over the south-central U.S. and into the Deep South, a cold front slowly
sinking towards the south will bring in colder temperatures for the
beginning of the week. A wave of low pressure along this front over the
northern Gulf of Mexico, along with moisture transport northward and over
the colder air at the surface, will allow for wintry precipitation to
develop from northern Texas to the southern Appalachians, and rain closer
to the Gulf Coast. Snow is likely north of the Interstate 40 corridor,
and a wintry mix extending south to the Interstate 20 corridor. Winter
storm watches are already in effect for these areas with significant snow,
sleet, and ice accumulations expected.

Unsettled Rocky Mtns and NW, Snow Cntrl US, Rains in the south

…Steady coastal rains and heavy mountain snows continue out West…

…Quick moving coastal low could bring unsettled weather from northern
Florida to the Carolina coasts…

Persistent onshore flow will keep conditions unsettled across the Western
U.S. the next few days. Widespread precipitation is expected surrounding
a frontal boundary stretched through Oregon…the Intermountain West…and
down into the Colorado Rockies; However…the heaviest amounts will be
closer to the coast…where waves of energy aloft…combined with favored
orographics…will help produce significant totals along the
Oregon/California coastal ranges as well as the Sierra Nevada. With the
exception of locations along the coast…the majority of precipitation
should fall as snow…leading to impressive snowfall totals over some of
the higher terrain.

Energy ejecting out of the Southwest and crossing the southern tier on
Friday should help foster precipitation to the north of a frontal boundary
stalled across the northern Gulf. Amounts should initially be light with
this system…but a winter mix will be possible within the northern fringe
of the precipitation shield. Also…as the energy lifts towards the
Mid-Atlantic and spins up a surface low off the Southeast coast on
Saturday…some heavier rains are expected over northern Florida and the
Carolina coasts. Light snows will be a possibility farther inland while
the coastal low races away from the Eastern Seaboard.

Light snows will be possible with a weak piece of energy streaking from
the Midwest to the Northeast/Northern Mid-Atlantic states Saturday into
Sunday. Moisture will be extremely limited with this system…keeping
accumulations to a minimum.
