June Outlook Brings More Warmth

30 May 2022, 2:30 am

The June outlook is highlighting warmer than normal temperatures across much of the nation. That’s according to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, issuing the 30 day forecast recently. Above average temperatures are expected across the southern two-thirds of the nation. Only the Pacific Northwest coast is predicted to see a cooler than normal month.

The first month of summer is likely to trend drier than average across most of the West and Plains. Odds favor a wetter than normal June in Florida and along most of the Gulf of Mexico coastline.

A persistent La Nina was one the driving factors in the June forecast and the Climate Prediction Center expects conditions to last for several months.  La Nina occurs when the waters of the Pacific Ocean show a general trend of cooling, the opposite of an El Nino. The latest model guidance, soil moisture/drought conditions, and global circulation trends also impacted the June outlook.
