Latest outlook for April through June shows likely warmer than normal

NOAA released its latest outlooks for April and the April through June period. Both the April and April-June outlook maps shows the likelihood of having warmer than normal temperatures during those periods. I am sure this is due in part to the trend towards warmer temperatures in recent years, which makes getting another warm year more likely than a colder year. There is no real tendency towards wetter or drier conditions for either the April period or the April-June period except for Virginia. This most likely reflects the current neutral phase of ENSO as we transition from La Nina to El Nino later this year.
