Forecast for June is now in, Lots of thunderstorms and some snow. WAIT? Snow?

While June is not expected to run colder than normal a strong cold front mid week is expected too cool the air enough for snow to fall. Accumulations are all over the place in the models but it is expected late week, afterwards the temperatures are expected to quickly shoot back into the 20s.
