According to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, the April-June temperature outlook suggests this pattern of warmth will continue. Winter also brought above normal precipitation to much of the contiguous United States and abundant snowfall to several regions. Overall, it was the wettest winter since 1998 for the Lower 48.
