NOAA releases summer forecast for MN, IA and WI

I’m looking forward to this summer! I have weddings to attend, trips planned and I’m also ready to go out without a jacket. But of course Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa can be unpredictable. So what does Mother Nature have in store for us this summer?

The National Weather Service released its forecast for this summer. It covers the whole country but we will mainly focus on the Midwest. We will look at temperature forecasts and precipitation forecasts.

I complained a lot about this spring but here I am again. I’m tired of wearing my winter jacket! The temperature at this time of year is supposed to be in the upper fifties to the lower sixties. Yes, I’m excited for summer.

First, we’ll look at the predicted average temperature and whether we’ll be above average or below average. NOAA says that for our part of the country, there is a good chance that we will be above the average temperature.

In Minnesota in June the average temperature is between the mid-70s and the 80s, in July it’s the mid 80’s, and in August it’s in the upper 80s to 70s. So temperatures slightly above which I will not be mad.

The precipitation, on the other hand, does not look good. NOAA predicts below average precipitation for our region during the summer.

Now, these forecasts cover June, July and August, so we still have to go through May. What does it look like according to NOAA? They say temperatures in May will be…below average…again.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel! One more cold month and we can have good weather.
