Relatively warm and dry weather is expected for much of the nation during the month of October. That’s according to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center outlook for next month.  All areas, excluding the Pacific Northwest, are forecast to see a warmer than average October. Drier than normal weather is anticipated from the Southwest into the Tennessee River Valley. The Pacific Northwest and Florida are predicted to see above average precipitation.

Model guidance, statistical tools and the further development of La Nina were the main factors considered for the outlook. A La Nina Watch was issued by the CPC earlier this summer. The latest advisory has La Nina starting and a 75% chance for it to continue through autumn.
