The Climate Prediction Center has updated the April outlook, continuing the trend of the previous outlook of warm and dry conditions. Above average temperatures are in the forecast over most of the nation, especially in the western Great Lakes and Upper Midwest. Only the Pacific Northwest expected to see a cooler than normal month. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1377353075040522245 Odds favor drier than average weather from the Southeast and Gulf Coast states westward to the Four Corners. This will likely lead to continued drought conditions in the West, and Texas with drought development in Florida. Above normal precipitation is forecast in the Upper Midwest. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1377353728311783425 The Climate Prediction Center noted that model forecasts were the primary guidance used in the April outlook. La Nina conditions are still being observed in the Pacific and are expected to continue for April, so typical La Nina impacts played a roll in the forecast for this month. Soil moisture and sea surface temperatures were also considered.
