Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Southern Region for December 2019 – February 2020. Dated March 2020.
Winter temperatures were above normal for much of the region with the west experiencing smaller departures from normal due to a cooler February. Winter precipitation varied spatially across the region with wetter than normal conditions in the north and east and drier than normal conditions in parts of the west and south.
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.
