The National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center (CPC) provides little precip guidance in its outlook for spring, as it calls for equal chances of normal, below- or above-normal precip through June across the Corn Belt and Plains. But the 90-day outlook signals below-normal temps will maintain their hold on the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest, while above-normal temps will increase moisture needs across the South and West, including southern Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, where winter wheat conditions slipped through the winter.
