Trend this summer is for wet, cool weather

Article from the Ag sector about the great plains but it's showing the Central Rockies getting more moisture this summer as well. I'll take it.

El Nino produced abundant snowpack in the Rockies, as well as a frigid, icy late winter and a chilly, wet early spring on the Plains.

Now, El Nino’s wetter than normal impact is sticking around for at least, several more months.

“Yes we do still have El Nino. This has allowed additional storm systems to bring heavy rains to the central and southern Plains over the past month including Kansas. Looking ahead at the next 10-14 days (throughout May) unfortunately we see a similar pattern developing which includes a large storm system across the western U.S. with a ridge of high pressure across the Southeast U.S. This pattern will bring the Plains more wet and stormy weather through the rest of May, for starters,” said Chad Omitt, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Topeka, Kan.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

This is the forecast that is making folks hedge their runoff forecast lower and longer.... HOWEVER, we just had a pretty notable dirt on snow event in the Ark Valley. At least down low. It has been raining lightly all day and everything I have cleaned has been muddy. I bet it has been dumping up high.

Drove through South Park yesterday, never seen so many elk, so yes, it is/has/will dump up high!
