The latest observations from February show that neutral conditions continue across the equatorial Pacific Ocean. The models are in very good agreement that these conditions will likely continue for the Spring season. The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) says “March 2013 has been colder than normal from the Dakotas into the southeast, and this pattern appears to stay in place until the end of March, at least. The Prediction of elevated chances for above average in April for much of the Country (except the North West) may be at odds with early April observations.” The slideshow on the top of the page has the model forecasts.
Climate Prediction Center (CPC) outlook for both April and the April to June timeframe is for warmer and wetter than average conditions for the Great Lakes.
