It calls for warmer than normal temperatures throughout the eastern third of the nation and in the Pacific Northwest. Cooler than average readings are expected in the central Plains. Wetter than normal conditions are anticipated throughout most of the Plains and Southeast. The Pacific Northwest is forecast to see drier than normal conditions. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1108718336135839745 The Climate Prediction Center noted the main influences in the April forecast were soil moisture conditions, snowfall coverage, overall weather patterns and model guidance. The ongoing weak El Nino was also a factor. With above average snow coverage and wetter than normal soils, cooler than below normal temperatures are favored throughout the Plains. Forecast models and global weather patterns favor warmer than average weather for the East. Model forecasts and El Nino conditions supports the wetter than average forecast across the South and Southeast. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
