On Thursday, along with the Winter Outlook
, the Climate Prediction Center
issued their 30 day forecast
for November. Mild weather is likely ahead, as warmer than average temperatures are favored across most of the nation. Below normal precipitation is forecast for the Southeast, which will worsen the drought conditions in the area. Wetter than average weather is on the way from the Front Range to the High Plains.
The November outlook
was largely based on dynamical models
and statistical tool guidance, and to a lesser degree, current global conditions. Overall trends and model forecasts support warmth across much of the nation and drier conditions in the Southeast.
