The latest outlook maps from the Climate Prediction Center were released today. They are shown below. They continue to show patterns that are associated with a moderate to strong El Niño signal. The most likely place for cool and wet conditions is the Florida panhandle, with less certainty the farther north you go. However, unusually warm weather is expected to last for the rest of December, and we could see Christmas Day in the 70s across much of the Southeast after a cool-down this weekend.
