We have been having beautiful weather in the last week and it is continuing through this weekend and the starting of next week. No rain is in the forecast yet. All this is because of an Omega Block in the atmosphere driving all the storms around us and keeping the region dry as a bone. We are about 5" of rain below normal now year-to-date and we are not even into summer yet so lets hope that this wont go into the summer time. 

OMEGA BLOCK
A warm high aloft which has become displaced and is on the polar-ward side of the jet stream. It frequently occurs in the late winter and early spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The name comes from its resemblance to the Greek letter, Omega, when analyzed on upper air charts.
