Are you curious as to what the forecast is like for the spring and summer? Are you wondering if Oklahoma is going to see the kind of rain that it did last spring or are you wondering if it is going to be incredibly hot once again this summer? The Climate Prediction Center sends out three-month outlooks to give people probabilities of what temperature and precipitation values may be compared to an average of what the region has seen the past thirty years.For spring, it’s likely that we will see about normal temperatures with above-median precipitation. To give you an idea of what “normal” is, the near-normal temperature is about 63 in March, 72 in April, and 80 in May. The average precipitation for March and April is 3.07” and 4.65” for May.
For summer, the CPC says that it is likely that we will see above normal temperatures and about near-median precipitation. To give you an idea of what “normal” is for summer, the near-normal temperature is 88 in June, 94 in July, and 93 in August. The average precipitation is 4.92” for June, 2.91” for July, and 3.27” for August.
