SUMMER WEATHER FORECAST FOR THE U.S.
WILL IT BE A HOT SUMMER?
If you like your summers nice and hot, you’re all set! Generally speaking, we’ve predicted that summer temperatures will be hotter than normal, with the hottest periods in mid-June, mid- to late July, and early August. Rainfall will be below normal in the north and above normal in the south.
June set the tone for the season. We predicted above-normal temperatures in the northeastern quarter of the United States, the Pacific Northwest, and Alaska; June temperatures were expected to be cooler than normal in most other areas, including Florida, the Southeast, the Intermountain region, and from Texas-Oklahoma west to the California coast.
Most areas were forecasted to have near- to above-normal rainfall in June, with drier weather expected in Northeast, Appalachians, Southeast, Desert Southwest, Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, and southern Alaska.
July will bring mostly good weather for outdoor activities—especially those near water—with temperatures above normal in nearly all of the northern half of the United States. In the Heartland and across the southern half of the United States, although temperatures will be near or slightly below normal, on average, there will still be plenty of hot days.
July rainfall will be below normal from the Northeast westward across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley through the Upper Midwest and Heartland. Rainfall will also be below normal in the High Plains, Desert Southwest, and Pacific Northwest. Elsewhere in the United States, rainfall will be near or above normal, with well above–normal rainfall and many thunder bumpers in the Atlantic Corridor, Southeast, Deep South, Texas, and Oklahoma.
August will continue the trend of having good weather for outdoor activities, with summer temperatures near or above normal in most of the United States, although not as hot as normal from New England into Pennsylvania and New Jersey, in the Upper Midwest and Texas, from the Intermountain region and Desert Southwest to the Pacific, in Alaska, and on Oahu.
August rainfall will be below normal in Maine, around New York’s Finger Lakes, from Florida and the Southeast westward to Texas, and in the High Plains, Desert Southwest, southern Alaska, and Hawaii. Elsewhere in the United States, rainfall will be near or above norm.
