Above-average temperatures were recorded over Virginia and Florida, with near-average temperatures reported over the rest of the Southeast. A few stations observed their top 5 wettest summers on record, including Staunton, VA and Hickory, NC. In contrast, parts of Florida and Georgia only had 70 percent of normal summer precipitation.
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.
