The three-month seasonal weather outlook calls for higher-than-normal temperatures for September through November for the entire country. While the likelihood of above-normal temperatures varies, the highest possibilities are for parts of the Southwest, New England, and Alaska, according to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report.
The Precipitation Outlook for September through November shows the possibility of above-normal precipitation is most likely across the Florida Peninsula, mid-Atlantic, and extending from parts of the Southwest north to the northern Great Plains and upper Mississippi Valley, reports Livestock WX.
“The seasonal outlooks reflect the fact that we have started to transition out of El Niño and the models are going off of recent trends for precipitation and temperature over the last decade,” says Livestock WX’ Chad McNutt. “In other words, El Niño is not expected to have much of an impact on circulation patterns and as a result, the models weighed recent trends more heavily. In some ways this could be a good thing and may mean the three-month outlooks are not necessarily a slam dunk.”
