Document Description

Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Midwest Region for June–August 2023. Dated September 2023.

Summer temperatures were near normal for most of the Midwest, with slightly above-normal temperatures in the west and slightly below-normal temperatures in the east. Summer precipitation was 84% of normal for the Midwest. Deficits of 4–10 inches were widespread across the northwest, while surpluses of 2–8 inches were observed across the south-central and eastern Midwest.

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 U.S. Drought Portal.
