US June 2017 Outlook (Includes Video)

Written by on May 24, 2017 in Spring 2017, United States of America with 0 Comments

The great reduction in US drought area during the first 4-5 months of the year has been excellent for growing areas and is likely to influence the fast approaching summer. Greater coverage of wet ground and shrinkage of drought area should translate to cooler, wetter conditions across a broad swathe of the country in June.

Amazing contrast between worst (2012) and best (2017) drought conditions.

Latest drought map shows Texas has some drought but worst is Southeast and Florida.

Combination of dry ground in Texas and Southeast and warm Gulf/W Atlantic means June is likely to be warmer, possibly drier than average across the South but wet ground over the Arklatex, Missouri vs dry Gulf Coast and warm GOA could mean an atmospheric battleground and fight with heavy rainfall and lively thunderstorm activity in between. Cooler further north.

Warm waters off the East Coast will likely push humidity levels up and so warm but also wet conditions are expected east of the Appalachians. Florida is looking hot!
