Warmth will be felt in the majority of the country for the upcoming month of August, according to the new August forecast issued by the Climate Prediction Center. Above average temperatures are in the forecast most of the nation, outside of the northern Plains. Drier than normal conditions are expected in the Pacific Northwest and southern Plains, with wetter than average weather for the Southwest and parts of the Southeast along the Atlantic Ocean. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/1019929733927186433 This 30 day outlook was based primarily on model guidance, climate statistics, current soil moisture conditions, and tropical influences. No influences from El Nino or La Nina are expected, as neutral water temperatures are being observed in the Pacific Ocean. Long range computer model forecast and current global trends support the warmer forecast over most of the nation, along with supporting above average monsoonal rainfall in the Southwest. With dry soil moisture conditions in the southern Plains, this leads to the below average precipitation forecast. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
