Drought conditions are expected to persist in the Southwest, with a few areas added in the Northwest and in southern Texas. The Climate Prediction Center states that neutral water temperature conditions are likely throughout the summer in the Pacific Ocean, with no La Nina or El Nino expected. Soil moisture conditions were another consideration for the forecast. With wet soil moisture conditions around the Great Lakes, it is one of the areas that may see near normal temperatures this summer. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
