We realize it won't help anything, but can you give a reason for all the storms repeatedly bypassing the panhandles of Texas and Okla. and the SE part of Colo and SW part of Kansas? Any signs of a change? Thank you, Janet Tregellas

Janet, good to hear from you. The cause of storms continuing to miss the Panhandles, southeast Colorado and southwest Kansas is the fact that there has been very little subtropical jet stream flow into the U.S. from around Baja California. We saw a little of that formation back in late February, but ever since the storm source center has been from the Gulf of Alaska with the jet streams diving southeast, and then turning northeast. It does not look promising for that pattern to change with this current scenario. I know this is not good news for your area.

Thank you Bryce, for your reply and attention to our plight. One more inquiry. When do we "normally" get the most flow from Baja? is it around August and hurricane season? or spring? Historically May is wettest month here in Ochiltree County, followed in order by June, July, and August, so that probably means we get the most Baja flow in May, etc. Thanks again, JT
