Temperatures and precipitation were variable across the region this past month, with most of the region exhibiting slightly above=average temperatures and below-average precipitation.
Streamflows are near normal across most of the region. Drought conditions have improved. Tropical storm activity has been minimal. La Niña is expected to continue. Looking ahead: The three-month Southeast outlooks show temperatures leaning towards warmer than normal across the region. Precipitation is leaning to drier than normal in northern Alabama, Georgia, western North Carolina, and western Virginia, and leaning toward wetter than normal in Florida and the coastal Carolinas.
Expect streamflows to continue mostly in the below normal to normal range for much of the Southeast through autumn. Below-normal streamflow will be more likely if tropical activity does not impact the Southeast. The Atlantic Hurricane Season has begun—stay prepared!
