May Forecast Calls for Rain, Below-Average Temperatures

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – As we look forward to warming up and drying out, Mother Nature may not be on the same page.

National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs says the May forecast has been updated.

“We are seeing some warming through the middle of the week,” National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs said, “but when I look out at the month of May as a whole, the prediction center did update its May forecast for the entire month, that update has a likelihood of below-normal temperatures for the month of May.”

And, Fuchs said, it also includes above-average precipitation.

“The center of that above-average chance being over the state of Iowa. Iowa actually had the best chance of above-average rainfall for May with that carrying over to northern Missouri and northwest Illinois,” he explained.

Fuchs said based on that prediction, don’t expect the rivers to drop dramatically anytime soon.
