Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Mid-Atlantic Region - September 2023
Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Mid-Atlantic Region for June–August 2023. Dated September 2023.
Average temperatures for the summer season were 0–1 degrees below normal for much of the region. This is the first cooler-than-normal season since the start of the MARISA Climate Summary series in 2018. Summer precipitation amounts varied across the region, with some sites experiencing 50%–75% of normal rainfall with others experiencing over 150% of their normal amounts of rainfall.
NOAA’s Mid-Atlantic RISA Team (MARISA) created this outlook in partnership with NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions. Each regional report contains easy-to-understand language, and anyone can access them through the U.S. Drought Portal.
