CPC Temperature and Precipitation Outlooks

Associated Agencies

NOAA / National Weather Service / National Centers for Environmental Prediction / Climate Prediction Center (CPC)

The National Weather Service (NWS) Climate Prediction Center (CPC) produces temperature and precipitation outlooks for the U.S., including 6-10 day, 8-14 day, monthly, and seasonal outlooks. The outlooks depict whether there is a greater chance for above-normal, below-normal, or near-normal conditions during the noted time frame.
