Discussion

A nice stretch of weather will begin by later today and continue right through the upcoming weekend. High pressure anchored in the Northeast US will bring us quite a bit of sunshine each day through Sunday as well as generally near normal temperatures for this time of year.

Elsewhere, an unprecedented early May snowstorm will occur over a wide swath of the country over the next couple of days. The southern Rockies region between Denver, Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming will be hit hard today with several inches of accumulating snow and then the region between Omaha, Nebraska and Minneapolis, Minnesota will likely receive several inches of snow from tonight into Thursday. While snow does occur in the month of May in many of these locations, it is somewhat rare to get this large of an area receiving this much snow this late in the season. Omaha, Nebraska has never received more than two inches of snow in the month of May and they are likely to surpass that mark by tomorrow. Des Moines, Iowa’s biggest May snow is only 1.2 inches and they also have a shot at beating that mark by Thursday.
