Summer verses Winter Even In July… Snow For Rockies, 90s For East Coast

Written by on July 6, 2016 in Summer 2016, United States of America with 0 Comments

As pointed out in recent days, we have a very active storm track for July crossing the Northern United States with a conga line of systems crossing the Pacific and entering the Pacific Northwest. The current system is crossing the N Plains and entering the Great Lakes bringing heavy rain and severe thunderstorms, the next and more intense system can be seen pushing towards the Pac Northwest coast on the below water vapour loop.

While we’re talking heat across the Southern Tier and up the East Coast, an unusually cold system will cross the Pacific Northwest this weekend bringing not only rain and wind but high elevation snowfall. While the current GL systewm trough will help push the heat eastward bringing 90s to DC, New York and Boston!

However, 100F all the way to the Dakotas could precede the next system before day and night temps crash 20-30 below normal over Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

20 inches of snow is plausible above 9,000ft in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming with this unusually cold July storm.
