November Outlook Released

The Climate Prediction Center released temperature and precipitation outlooks for the continental United States for the month of November, and it could mean changes for the Central Savannah River Area.

The CPC says there are “equal chances” of above or below average temperatures for the month as a whole in the region.

Equal chances means there is no clear signal one way or the other. One might assume that temperatures would be near average compared to the 30-year November norms. If that turns out to be the case, that would be a change from most of 2019 so far, which has been characterized by above normal temperatures in the CSRA.

Another change may be in precipitation. The Climate Prediction Center sees a change from the dry periods common late summer and early fall of this year.

Their forecast shows a bulls eye of at least a 40% chance of above average precipitation for the month. Keep in mind November tends to be among the drier months of the year for the CSRA, but above average precipitation would help to alleviate the drought conditions seen in September and October.
