Above-Normal Temps Expected Across the U.S. Through Year End

September 21, 2017 08:36 AM

The National Weather Service's (NWS) forecast for October through December calls for above-normal temps across the contiguous U.S., with the greatest chance of warmth across the Four-Corners region. This could result in some areas of the country needing spring-time rains for planting season, especially given the recent spread of drought across the Midwest, Kansas and continued drought conditions across the Northern Plains.

Meanwhile, it calls for above-normal precip across the Pacific Northwest and below-normal precip along the Gulf Coast into Missouri. Below-normal precip is also expected across eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the rest of the country has equal chances of normal, below- or above-normal precip.
