This week we have more seasonal air temperatures, and Thursday and Friday look to be nice minimal chances of precipitation. However, a slow-moving system will move into the state on Saturday and result in localized showers and storms starting Saturday evening and into Sunday. The forecast through June 10th is cool and wetter than normal (Figure 2). The rainfall forecast through June 6th is 0.5 to 1 inch across the state (Figure 3).
