NOAA has released it's summer temperature outlook for 2016.



Oddly enough, the middle part of the country is forecast to be cooler than than the rest of us. It's usually hotter than Hades there in the summer.

Well I always figured I'd need a hell of a reason to spend any time in Kansas, sadly this still isn't good enough. Anymore it seems out of the norm to see blue on these prediction maps.

These graphs are always misleading as it looks like it will be cool in the center part of the US and hot everywhere else. I always take these with a little bit of a grain of salt as it is a probability, relative to normal. In the western half of the state, we have a 33-40% chance of being above normal. Even if it is above normal by a 1 degree average for the whole summer, they would correct. If that were to happen, we likely wouldn't even notice it being a "hot" summer. If I were in Vegas, I wouldn't bet much money on a 33-40% chance of probability. Even in an area like the eastern part of the US or the western part of the US, they only have a 50-60% chance of being "warmer than normal" which is better betting odds, but doesn't mean it's going to be hot.

For those of you who are planning a trip to Kansas, It will likely still be hotter than hades there, as the graph shows they should still be at their normal temps. Given that, it will likely still be hotter there than here.

It's not readily apparent at first glance, but what the chart suggests is that it may be above average almost everywhere, except possibly in the middle of the country - which should be normally uncomfortably hot. No parts of the country are predicted to be below normal. But it's all just a forecast, you never know what mother nature may decide to do.

The bad news is no relief for the already drought stricken west. And abnormal warmth in parts of Alaska and Canada, which could be long term trouble for the environment there.
