Forecast for February 2017

Temperature probability forecast

The “official” temperature forecasts (outlooks) are issued on the 15th of the month preceding the target forecast month (0.5-month lead time). These forecasts are stored in the Archive for verification. Forecasts with the lead time of up to 10.5 months are available for subscribers in the form of 1) maps showing the probability of occurrence of above and below normal temperature over the contiguous United States and 2) time series of normalized temperature anomalies for selected cities. Currently the forecasts of temperature anomalies, as well as heating degree days (HDDs) and cooling degree days (CDDs) are prepared for Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago, Cincinnati, Minneapolis and New York.
