Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Southeast Region for June – August 2017.  Dated September 2017.  

Periods of unusually warm and cool weather produced few extremes in average summer temperature across the region. In fact, about 80% of the 206 long-term (i.e., period of record equaling or exceeding 50 years) stations observed summer mean temperatures that were ranked outside their ten warmest or coolest values on record. However, extreme warmth occurred in portions of central and southern Florida, as well as Puerto Rico. Miami, FL and Guayama, PR observed their second warmest 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 https://www.drought.gov/drought/resources/reports
