Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Midwest Region for September–November 2022. Dated December 2022.

Average fall temperatures were 1–2°F above normal across the upper Midwest, near normal across the central Midwest, and 1–2°F below normal across the lower Midwest. Most of the Midwest had less than 75 percent of normal precipitation for fall, with the south-central Midwest, western Iowa, and southern Minnesota accumulating less than 50 percent of normal.

NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program created these climate outlooks 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 Drought Portal.
