May is climatologically our driest 3rd driest month of the year and it may prove to be even drier than usual. Our outlook for the month, using information from the Climate Prediction Center, is showing dry weather for the Borderlands along and through the Rio Grand Valley. Dry weather is likely as well for Florida and the Coastal Carolinas. Meanwhile, bad news possible for the Tennessee River Valley, including the Central Tennessee where record flooding has occurred. It'll likely be a wet month for the folks across parts of the South. The Temperature Outlook is calling for near normal weather for the month while Arizona will see big heat. Hot as well for parts of the Northwest with cooler than normal weather across the Dakotas. Weather looks near normal for the eastern half of the United States.
First 90 of the year?
It's likely to happen over the next several days as a flat ridge/zonal upper level flow sets up across the United States. We haven't seen a 90 degree day since Sept 30, 2009. That day we hit a balmy 94.
