More heat is ahead for the summer! On Thursday, the Climate Prediction Center issued a new 90 day forecast covering the period from July to September. Most of the country is forecast to see above average temperatures, especially in the Southwest, Southeast, and Northeast. Below normal temperatures are not in the forecast anywhere in the nation.
The rainfall forecast has a few pockets of above average areas: along the Texas and Louisiana coastlines and in the High Plains. Drier than normal conditions are not in the forecast anywhere in the country.

Neutral water temperatures are still being found in the Pacific Ocean and that trend is expected to continue. Therefore, no influences are expected from an El Nino or La Nina. Forecasters relied heavily on current overall meteorological trends, past climatology, and weather model predictions.
