NOAA released the latest monthly climate outlooks for September and the September through November period yesterday. They show that warmer than normal temperatures continue to be expected in the next month and season for the U. S. as a whole, although most of the Southeast has equal chances of below, near, and above normal in September. The continued likelihood of warmer than normal temperatures is due to the upward trend in temperature over time, which makes above-normal temperatures more likely than below-normal temperatures in general every month. The precipitation outlook shows that southern portions of the region are most likely to be wetter than normal, most likely due to the increased tropical activity that is expected to ramp up in the next few weeks.
