The summer outlook is in from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center and it is looking warm for most of the nation. Warmer than average temperatures are in the forecast for most of the nation, especially in the Southwest and along the East Coast. The outlook was issued on Thursday and covers June, July, and August. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1395367832666345473 The precipitation forecast has increased odds for above normal moisture across the East and Gulf Coasts. Drier than normal conditions are expected over most of the West, from the Northwest to the Four Corners. This will likely cause a continuation and possible expansion of drought conditions over nearly the western half of the country. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1395369066957705219 La Nina has come to an end in the Pacific Ocean and neutral temperatures are being observed. Model guidance, soil moisture content and decadal trends were the main guidance used in this outlook, as stated in the Climate Prediction Center discussion.
