The November outlook from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center was issued on Thursday and it is leaning mild and dry across most of the nation. Above average temperatures are in the forecast from the Eastern Seaboard westward through the Plains into the Southwest. Drier than normal weather is expected from the Four Corners to the Southeast.  Odds favor a wetter than normal month in the Pacific Northwest. With a drier month in the forecast across the southern Plains and Southwest, drought conditions are expected to persist and may worsen. Improvement will likely be seen in the Northwest and Northeast. The CPC says that La Nina conditions are starting to be observed in the Pacific Ocean and are expected into early next year. La Nina was discussed earlier this month by the CPC. The trends of an El Nino or La Nina often take some time to establish, so its effects will be seen gradually throughout November. Model forecasts were also used to determine the upcoming influence of La Nina for next month.
