September weather outlook - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

September weather outlook

August turned-out to be wetter than normal, and September is starting off on a soggy note thanks in the most part to remnants of Isaac.  But what about the rest of the month?

The long-range forecast from the Climate Prediction Center call for much of the country to experience warmer than normal temperatures.  For the tri-state, there's at least a 40 percent chance September will be warm with below normal conditions expected on the west coast.

As for rainfall, there's a 33 to 40 percent chance the tri-state will be wetter than usual.  Rainy weather is also expected along parts of the gulf coast and the desert  southwest.  Drier than normal weather is forecast for the upper midwest and pacific northwest.

Of course, this forecast is an average for the entire month, so we won't necessarily see warmer and wetter conditions during all of September.
