This week, WeatherAg Chief Meteorologist Scott Borgioli released his first outlook for precipitation and temperature for the 2023-2024 season. Borgioli reports that during mid/late May, El Nino was officially declared. He anticipates seasonal curveballs such as excessive precipitation spurts across portions of California, via cut-off lows and atmospheric rivers, to occur between mid-October and March or April.
As for temperatures, Borgioli reports that above average mean temperatures are expected during the season. However, there could be cold spells. While there is no way to predict individual cold-air outbreaks this far in advance the length and depth of these cold spells will be reported in the weather reports posted to the CCM website beginning November 15. Potential signals for cold spells typically occur about 7-14 days in advance.
As a reminder, the CCM daily Weather Watch Program will begin on November 15, 2023, and run through March 15, 2024.
