The NOAA just released its three month outlook for July-August-September 2021. It’s looking lie the majority of the country will be warmer than normal, especially the Northeast,  the northwest will be drier than normal and the east wetter than normal.

Check out the summary below from the NOAA:

The July-August-September (JAS) 2021 temperature outlook favors above-normal temperatures for Alaska, the western half of the CONUS, the eastern quarter of the CONUS, and the Northern Plains, with the largest probabilities (greater than 60 percent) forecast across the Northeast.

The JAS 2021 precipitation outlook depicts enhanced probabilities of below-normal precipitation amounts across the Pacific Northwest, Rockies, and parts of the High Plains. Above-normal precipitation is more likely from the Eastern Seaboard to the Lower Mississippi Valley and parts of the Southern Plains. Above normal precipitation amounts are slightly favored for parts of northwestern Alaska. Equal chances (EC) are forecast for areas where probabilities for each category of seasonal mean temperatures and seasonal accumulated precipitation amounts are expected to be similar to climatological probabilities.
