The WxIntegrations team has been reviewing the recent “Revised NOAA 2017 Climate outlooks” that were released on May 18, 2017. In this blog post, we wanted to highlight a few key trends for our valued clients and friends. Please review our most recent video as well for additional details and personal insights from our CEO, Diane Cooper.
In general, the climate outlook indicates that a large portion of the East, the Gulf of Mexico region, areas along the Mexican border and then the West Coast will experience above normal temperatures. The remainder of the country will experience near normal conditions. A large portion of the country is forecasted to experience near normal precipitation, but there is a pocket of above normal precipitation forecasted for parts of the Rocky Mountains.
For temperatures, we will see a ring of above normal with the East, Gulf of Mexico region, areas along the Mexican border and the West Coast all experiencing above normal temperatures. On the flip side, parts of the central Rockies will below normal temperatures. The remainder of the Central US and parts of the West have Equal Chances (EC) of seeing above, below or normal temperatures.
For precipitation, the outlooks show a region of above normal precipitation for the Rocky Mountains. Otherwise, much of the country has Equal Chances (EC) of seeing above, below or normal precipitation in June.
For a more detailed briefing including a look what we expect through the end of May as well as the outlooks for June, check our 2017 June Climate outlook video.
