Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Midwest Region for September – November 2018.  Dated December 2018. 

Fall began with a warm September (15th warmest for the Midwest and record warm in Ohio since 1895) with the warmth continuing through early October for the southeastern two thirds of the Midwest.  Precipitation was particularly abundant from Iowa to Wisconsin and in the Ohio River Valley.


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 https://www.drought.gov/drought/resources/reports.
