The Climate Prediction Center recently issued its September forecast, calling for warmer than normal weather along the Gulf of Mexico coastline and Eastern Seaboard. Much of the West is expected to see above average readings as well. Cooler than normal temperatures are in the outlook for the Central Plains. Above average precipitation is in the outlook for much of the eastern third of the nation.

The Climate Prediction Center states that the September outlook was based on forecast model guidance, statistical tools, and to a lesser extent, current soil moisture conditions. EL Nino or La Nina will not be a factor since Pacific Ocean water temperatures are in a neutral state and are expected to remain that way next month.
