After a hot and dry summer, parts of cattle country may see some precipitation.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has updated its long-term forecasts for August and there’s some precipitation possible, although heat remains, reports LivestockWX.

For temperature, a warmer-than-normal August is expected for a large part of the country. The odds are strongest for the Plains/Southwest/West. August precipitation is less clear, although, we see some enhanced odds in parts of Oklahoma, Texas, the Northern Plains and the Southeast.

Somewhat similar to expectations for August, the seasonal outlook shows enhanced odds of a warmer-than-normal August through October. The odds are highest in parts of the Southwest and California.

The outlook for precipitation for August-September-October is showing a tilt in the odds of higher-than-normal precipitation in the Dakotas and parts of the Southeast. Below-average precipitation could be observed in parts of Colorado, Oklahoma, and Kansas. The odds are relatively weak, though, and it doesn’t appear there is a strong regional trend among the models for the Central Plains.
