Long-range weather pattern update

Fairly extreme pattern ongoing across the Lower 48 states with an unusually strong trough bringing very cool and showery weather to the west with low snow levels. In the East, a strong ridge will keep the Southeast United States hot with record high temperatures. In between, more rounds of severe weather and flooding from the central U.S. into the Midwest.

Things are a bit more tranquil here in Canada. Signals are strong for another significant warmup with little precipitation for western Canada, especially in BC and northern Alberta next week.

We will be releasing the summer 2019 Canada outlook next week, and I certainly have concerns about the potential for an extended stretch of very warm and dry conditions over portions of the west this summer.
