I think it will be a cold and snowy winter for the USA this year. Lots of cold air hovered across the USA into June and by the end of July it had cooled off again with plenty of moisture around.

It depends on the overall storm track this year. The latest forecasts suggest more of a NW flow pattern for CO with the main trough (dip in the jet stream) in the eastern half of the country (perhaps similar to 2010 - 2011). The persistent dryness in the West is acting as a feedback loop in that the ridge is going to favor that area. This could keep the typical storms from dropping through southern CO which give us the big snows. Keep in mind that the fall/winter of 2006-2007 was a strong El Nino, something which is lacking this summer...so far.

Funny you should make this post. Just yesterday, the same though crossed my mind. All that's left for now is the wait-and-see-how-it-all-plays-out part.

Pueblo got more rain last night as well. I think in the past 2 days we have had about 2-3 inches of rain at my house. That is a lot considering Pueblo only gets about 11 inches of perception a year and that includes snow.

We have gotten some nice showers for the past few days, as well. Sure has perked things up around here! However, looks like we're back to warm and dry (maybe a t-storm in pm).

Alas, the rain came too late to do much good for the local wheat farmers. Wheat harvests are as low as 3 bushels/acre for dryland this year. Normal drylands yields are around 26/acre.

Default Manitou Springs flash flood

This morning hasn't started out well on the news front. Have been watching cable news and all three networks have reported from time to time on the flash flood that roared through Manitou Springs late yesterday afternoon and the most damage appears to be at the very spot regarding the Waldo Canyon fire incident last year. Several people have been injured and one person has been confirmed dead. He was buried under lots of debris right on U.S. Hwy. 24.

IIRC this is Manitou's third flash flood so far this season. Very very sad news.

^^Oh my! Poor old Manitou! That's what happens when you start a town out by building a bunch of ramshackle summer houses on the sides of a mountain. The last place I lived in Manitou before escaping to the West Slope for good was actually built over a spring!

I wonder how all my ex's are doing? Two are in Manitou and one lives in the Springs proper. See why I never go back there?

I hope everyone ELSE in Manitou is OK, though.

Snow today above tree line on Pikes Peak and the one due south of it.

I too think that this year will be a repeat of 2006, where we had a heavy monsoon summer and two major blizzards in Dec 2006 that shut down DIA for 3 days just before the holidays, followed by another big dumper of snow in early Jan 2007.

Many of you are assuming that the weather 3-6 months from now will somehow be influenced by this summer's weather. That's not my understanding of how weather works. Do you have any links to studies that support this sort of correlation?
