The outlook for the rest of the United States is also promising. Only a small portion of the northern and Pacific Northwest states have near-normal summer temperature forecasts.
Nationally, the precipitation forecast this summer is mixed with wetter than normal weather in southeastern and eastern states, as well as some from Arizona to New Mexico. , expecting a wetter monsoon season.
