May 2014 Forecast: All in one

By: Mikeman444 , 10:47 PM GMT on May 02, 2014

Looking Back at April the forecast came along fairly well. Temperatures were below to well below normal over of the region with the exception of near normal in extreme southern Alberta. Precipitation was near to above in most areas.

May 2014 Forecast for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
Issued 4:35pm May 2 2014.

Overall May will continue the trend of colder, wetter weather with most recovery in Alberta as heat begins to filter in from BC making that province near normal. The flow around this western ridge may boost the humidities early on. The long and thin nature of these ridges May contribute to a stormy pattern this upcoming month. Snowstorms, heavy rain, and even the first outbreak of Thunderstorms could be in the offing.

May 1-10: Long lasing cold, not seen since May of 2002 and 2003, heavy snow over southern regions.

May 10-20: Warming up in Alberta, Leaf out begins, slow recovery to the east.

May 20-31: Increased humidity from transpiration could be the tipping point for the first severe thunderstorms of the year in Southern Alberta. Weaker thunderstorms in the rest of Alberta, Sask, and parts of Manitoba possible. Snow melt finally wraps up over the last of the region, nearly a month late.

Once these storms have arrived later this month I should have my 2014 thunderstorm forecast ready.
