DC Area Spring 2017 Forecast

Recommended Posts

After researching analogs that match up closely to current sea-surface-temperature anomalies (as well as surface temperature and precipitation anomalies experienced from December through February), history suggests that drought-relief may be slow to achieve across the Mid-Atlantic over the next three calendar months (April through June).  Unless a late-spring Nor'easter impacts the Washington, D.C. Region between now and mid-April with heavy rainfall, warmer than average temperatures would only further exacerbate the ongoing drought. 

Temperature Anomalies based on analog package I chose:

Precipitation Anomalies based on analog package I chose:

Hot and dry.  Of course.

AccuWeather's long-range forecast is currently showing moderate rain for DC in April, but heavy rain (more than 7 inches) in May.

Have to tip my hat to AccuWeather, as their rain forecast from more than two months ago held up pretty well, coming in at 5.55 inches at DCA in May.
