Wet Spring, Normal Summer?

Linda Smith, Top Producer Executive Editor
We reported in our February magazine that odds favor wetter than or normal precipitation in April-June. It still looks that way, says Allen Motew of QT Weather, with wettest soils in the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and most of Illinois.
Record flooding is possible. Looking ahead to summer, precipitation has equal odds of being normal, wetter or drier than normal. Temperatures for July-September likely will be above average in the West, High Plains, Gulf States and Northeast but the heartland can go either way.
