22 Sep 2021, 2:00 am

The October outlook continues to follow the trend of this past summer with warmer than normal weather forecast over most of the nation. That’s according to the latest 30 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center. Above average temperatures are predicted from the Northeast through the Plains into the Southwest.

The precipitation forecast calls for drier than normal weather across most of the Southwest and Southern Plains. Above average precipitation is expected for the Northwest and from the Southeast and Middle Atlantic into the Great Lakes.

La Nina is expected to develop later this fall and winter, but any influence on October is expected to be minimal. Overall global trends and model forecast were the main factors used in the forecast for next month.
