May to July Outlook – Warmth Ahead for Most of the Nation

21 Apr 2020, 2:00 am

Above average temperatures are anticipated for most of the nation in the latest 90 day outlook from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. The forecast, which covers May, June and July, has warmer than normal weather for all of the West, South, and East.

Drier than average weather is forecast for the Pacific Northwest, which will likely create drought conditions. The ongoing drought may worsen from California to the Four Corners. Wetter than normal conditions are expected for the eastern two-thirds of the nation, which should improve the current drought across several Gulf of Mexico states.

The CPC noted that the outlooks were based primarily on dynamical model guidance, statistical tools, and recent observed weather trends. EL Nino or La Nina are not expected to factor through this outlook period as since sea surface temperatures are predicted to remain neutral.
