U.S Winter Outlook Issued

While the New Winter Outlook is calling for somewhat above normal precipitation for Star Valley along with a little warmer than average temperatures we know it will snow. The statement at the end of the article is worth repeating.

NOAA’s seasonal outlooks give the likelihood that temperature and precipitation will be above-, near, or below-average, and also how drought is expected to change, but do not project seasonal snowfall accumulations. While the last two winters featured above-average temperatures over much of the nation, significant snowstorms still impacted different parts of the country.
Snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance because they depend upon the strength and track of winter storms.
The U.S. Winter Outlook will be updated on November 16.
 NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center released the U.S. Winter Outlook,  with La Nina potentially emerging for the second year in a row as the biggest wildcard in how this year’s winter will shape up. La Nina has a 55- to 65-percent chance of developing before winter sets in.




NOAA produces seasonal outlooks to help communities prepare for what's likely to come in the next few months and minimize weather's impacts on lives and livelihoods. Empowering people with actionable forecasts and winter weather tips is key to NOAA’s effort to build a Weather-Ready Nation.
“If La Nina conditions develop, we predict it will be weak and potentially short-lived, but it could still shape the character of the upcoming winter,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “Typical La Nina patterns during winter include above average precipitation and colder than average temperatures along the Northern Tier of the U.S. and below normal precipitation and drier conditions across the South.”
Other factors that influence winter weather include the Arctic Oscillation, which influences the number of arctic air masses that penetrate into the South and is difficult to predict more than one to two weeks in advance, and the Madden-Julian Oscillation, which can affect the number of heavy rain events along the West Coast.
The 2017 U.S. Winter Outlook (December through February):
Precipitation
  • Wetter-than-average conditions are favored across most of the northern United States, extending from the northern Rockies, to the eastern Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley, in Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska.
  • Drier-than-normal conditions are most likely across the entire southern U.S.

Temperature
  • Warmer-than-normal conditions are most likely across the southern two-thirds of the continental U.S., along the East Coast, across Hawaii and in western and northern Alaska.
  • Below-average temperatures are favored along the Northern Tier of the country from Minnesota to the Pacific Northwest and in southeastern Alaska.
  • The rest of the country falls into the equal chance category, which means they have an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation because there is not a strong enough climate signal in these areas to shift the odds.

  • Despite the outlook favoring above-average precipitation this winter, drought is likely to persist in parts of the northern Plains, although improvement is anticipated farther West.  
  • Elsewhere, drought could develop across scattered areas of the South, mainly in regions that missed the rainfall associated with the active 2017 hurricane season.
NOAA’s seasonal outlooks give the likelihood that temperature and precipitation will be above-, near, or below-average, and also how drought is expected to change, but do not project seasonal snowfall accumulations. While the last two winters featured above-average temperatures over much of the nation, significant snowstorms still impacted different parts of the country. Snow forecasts are generally not predictable more than a week in advance because they depend upon the strength and track of winter storms. The U.S. Winter Outlook will be updated on November 16.

Summary of a Record or Near Record Water Year For Western Wyoming Including Star Valley


The Riverton Forecast Office has compiled a summary of the Water Year(Oct 1 2016-Sept 30 2017) precipitation for locations in Western Wyoming. For comparison Star Valley Ranch measured 38.05 inches with 252 inches of snow. This is comparable to the amount observed at Old Faithful in YNP where the 38.57 inches was the greatest ever recorded going back to 1905!  Another reliable observer in Star Valley Ranch actually measured around 40 inches for the Water Year.
Old Faithful measured 262 inches of snow vs the 252 at Star Valley Ranch.

Coldest Morning in 7 Months

Sunrise Over Afton WY October 9 2017 from the West Hills



Temperatures dipped to the lowest levels across much of Western Wyoming including Star Valley in about 7 months.  As an example Thayne Elementary weather station dropped to 19 degrees at sunrise the coldest since it was 17 above zero on March 6th.  The lowest reported reading in the valley this morning as 15 above zero at Double L Ranch located along the Salt River to the northwest of Etna

The following map is a plot of reported minimum temperatures across the region.  There were a few  single digits observed in the high elevations of northwest Wyoming.

Minimum Temperatures October 9 2017

Dry Fall Weather Ahead

With the dissipation of the snow showers Sunday evening across Star Valley it brings to an end a very wet 30 day period.  Star Valley Ranch has measured 5 inches of precipitation since the 8th of September. However it now appears that the jet stream pattern will be adjusting with much of the storm activity tracking mainly to the north of Western Wyoming the next couple of weeks.

There will be fast moving cold fronts crossing the mountain west during much of the remainder of October, for the most part they will be dry but windy.  Unlike the last few weeks, it appears like sunshine will be a frequent visitor to Western Wyoming, particularly this coming work week.

Beyond this week the forecasts are calling for cool and dry conditions.

Temperature Forecasts October 14-18 2017


Precipitation for period October 4-18 2017
Looking ahead toward the latter half  of October continued dry conditions cover much of the area.


Precipitation Probability Oct 21-Nov.  3 2017

Temperature Probability Oct 21- Nov 3 2017

The skill of forecasting, particularly precipitation, degrades  certainly beyond a week, however it is interesting to see the computer model forecast of accumulated precipitation over the next 16 days.








Totals for the next two plus weeks are generally less than an inch except for the high country in Northwest Wyoming.

Star Valley and Wyoming Water Year 2016-2017,

October 1st marks the beginning of a new water year.  Also a time to review the water year just ended.  With the exception of  a rather dry summer, Star Valley and surrounding areas were favored with  beneficial moisture,including both rain and snow.

The first figure displays the total precipitation that was measured from October 1 2016-September 30 2017(Water Year) for much of western Wyoming and surrounding areas.

Total Precipitation Oct. 1 2016 to Sept. 30 2017

Much of Northern and Western Wyoming experienced above to much above normal precipitation for the water year 2016/2017, noted in the following figure.





Daily observations of rain and snow are measured at Star Valley Ranch. Following are the monthly totals in inches of each at the Star Valley Ranch site at an elevation near 6400 feet.


Month          Rain        Snow
Oct 2016      6.05          9.8
Nov              1.63        17.5
Dec              3.90         64.0 
Jan 2017      5.00         69.5
Feb              5.04         41.1
Mar             2.81         17.2
Apr             4.56         23.7
May            1.47          5.0
Jun              2.06             0
Jul                 .22            0
Aug               .62            0
Sep              4.69         4.0

Total          38.05     251.8

The consequence of last winters snows was a very large spring and early summer runoff that filled the Snake River reservoir system by the first of July.  The water levels remain well above normal even as the new water year begins. The graph below compares the current vs last year and average water supply in Palisades reservoir.




       

With the benefical precipitation during the last half of September, the water level in Palisades has actually increased recently. It will be of interest to see how  the coming winter snow impacts the well above normal  current water storage in the Snake River System..
