We are just around a week into spring... but it sure doesn't feel like it. Unseasonably cold weather has been in place... and likely will hold through the end of the week before a nice warmup for the Easter holiday weekend.
So what about the outlook for the rest of spring? NOAA's Climate Prediction Center outlook for April... May and June brings a pretty solid likelyhood of above normal temperatures. For precipitation... it looks a little less certain... but right now projections show near to possible slightly below normal for spring.
As for the rest of the United States.....
Above-normal temperatures this spring are most likely across most of the continental U.S. and northern Alaska.
Below-normal temperatures are favored for the Pacific Northwest and extreme northern Great Plains.
For precipitation, odds favor wetter-than-normal conditions in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley regions.
Drier-than-normal conditions are most likely in much of the West, the Rockies, parts of the Southwest, much of Texas, along the Gulf Coast and Florida.
Hawaii has an enhanced chance of being cooler and drier than normal.
