After a relatively cool Spring as a whole, we now look forward to the summer months and what it could potentially bring to the region. A big part of our forecast has been following analogs, which are past years that resemble the output of the current year thus far. The use of analogs has served us well in the past, but no two years are exactly alike… so we are looking for general similarities with climate, teleconnections, and a slew of other factors. We will examine the summer months of June, July and August in detail throughout this outlook, and outline the factors that brought us to this seasonal forecast.
