After a hot and dry summer across most of the West, it looks like that trend will continue over the next month. That's according to the Climate Prediction Center (CPC)
, which recently released their September outlook. Warmer than normal temperatures, along with drier than average weather, are forecast across most of the West for the upcoming month. The Northeast and Florida are also expected to see above average temperatures. The Southeast has higher odds for a wetter than normal September.
An active month of tropical weather is leading to the wetter forecast for the Southeast, according to the CPC
. Current trends, model forecasts, and regional patterns support the continued warm and dry conditions for the West. La Nina has a 60% chance to develop later this autumn
, but it's not expected to influence the weather in September.
