Alaska can look forward to another warm season
The Climate Prediction Center has put out its forecast for the next three months—April, May and June—and once again, large portions of the state have a better than average chance of being warmer than normal. Northern Alaska remains one location that is consistently above average. The CPC says the next three months have a 55 percent of being above normal across the North Slope.
The Interior, West Coast, Alaska Peninsula and Aleutians have a 37 to 45 percent chance of being warmer than normal. There’s no distinct leaning for Southeast and Southcentral.
Precipitation, as always, is more difficult to forecast. Still the CPC puts northwest Alaska as having a 45 percent chance of being wetter than normal. Southcentral has a 45 percent chance of being drier than normal.
