Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Western Region for March – May 2018.  Dated June 2018.

Spring precipitation was above normal in a broad swath from central California northeast into Montana.  Well below normal precipitation across much of the Four Corners states; Arizona and New Mexico had their 10th driest spring.

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
