Document Description

Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Southeast Region for June – August 2018.  Dated September 2018.

Above-average temperatures were recorded over most of the Southeast. Mean temperatures were in the top five warmest at 27 long-term stations. Maximum temperatures were generally near normal, but minimum temperatures were 1-4 F above normal due to high humidity and cloud cover. Precipitation values ranged from 50% of normal in South Carolina to over 200% of normal in northern Virginia. Several long-term stations observed their wettest summer on record.

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 at
