Please lend your expertise

Can you help predict the weather forecast, especially for precipitation, in California's Capay Valley in late April/May 2019? Another outdoor wedding.

Having an outdoor wedding April 6th. What is the weather forecast? Please please please tell me dry!

San Jose CA Long Range Forecast 2018-2019

I firmly believe that from San Jose CA south we will see a drier and warmer than normal Winter/Spring as Fall will be warmer and drier than normal. My theory is if summer has been warm and with the major wildfires CA has had and with predictions of more fires for the Fall the warming from the fires and particles could lead to a higher chance of a drought.

I think that CA from San Jose south may be in for another long stretch of dry weather despite the El Nino forecast. The resilant ridge of High Pressure that was in effect during our last multi-year drought and the lack of sunspots may constitute for the Old Farmers Almanac to rethink their Long Range Forecast.

If we have a lot fo sunspots during an El NIno/La Nina Year think 1998 more flooding will occur due to the Pineapple Express.

Do you predecct above normal percipitation in the form of major Pineapple Expresses with mudslides along Highway 1?

Will San Jose CA be in for a drier than normal winter/spring for 2018-2019?

Hi. When will there be snow in Big Bear from Nov '18 to Mar '19 (winter)?

snow in Big Bear

Hoping around Halloween we receive our first snowfall. Check out my youtube channel.

This summer

What are we looking at for late July to early August? Do you anticipate very hot temps in San Jose (90s or higher) or will it be more reasonable - or can we just not predict that very accurately yet?

Cooler than normal?

My son has been in Montana for six years but moved back to NorCal in January. Yesterday he remarked that it seemed a lot colder here than he recalled from growing up here.
Do the stats support this? Is the average temperature here dropping, or is this winter just one of our anomaly years?
Spot on prediction about March, though. It's raining buckets here.

colder than years back

The first question that comes to mind is, how old is your son? because, to a certain extent his interpretation of average temps has to do with when he experienced them—when he grew up. Many people remember weather as being different now from their childhood—and many are correct. But the buzz we hear is that it tends to be warmer …

Averages, or normals, as we explain in the 2018 print Almanac on page 217, are based on 30-year periods. Currently that is 1981 to 2010. The period advances every 10 years. Virtually all meteorological services/orgs in the world subscribe to this calculation. Here is a page where you can look up a few California cities: https://www.currentresults.com/Weather/California/average-annual-city-te...

Here’s one from NOAA with records through the end of last year: https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/national/201712

Here’s another page, perhaps more current (you do not say where in NorCal, so not sure if this covers you): https://gacc.nifc.gov/oscc/predictive/outlooks/myfiles/assessment.pdf

Records suggest that the planet has had some of its warmest years in the past 20 years (or less); we seem to see a headline to this effect almost every year! Of course, not every place is warmer, but in terms of averages, California has been in that number.
