The only major rain event this summer was in July.
Brett Lutz with the National Weather Service said with the lack of rain, we could have a warm winter. “I think where the warming concern comes in is the snowpack,” Lutz explained. “It is really critical for us to get normal or above precipitation during those snow months.”
The snow months include November, December and January.
Lutz said the trend could change and we could see cooler temperatures, but what we would need is an average or above average wet season.
