Warmer than normal temperatures expected across the U.S. this fall

(FOX19) -

Summer-like weather may linger longer than usual this year for many across the United States.

 The early temperature outlook for September, October, and November released by the Climate Prediction Center forecasts above normal temperatures for the entire contiguous United States and Alaska. The greatest chance of seeing above normal temperatures looks to be in Alaska, the Rocky Mountains, the Northeast, and the Gulf Coast.
 
While this summer has not been exceptionally hot for many, long range models are not showing signs of any early cold shots. When this pattern has appeared in the past, it has typically lead to a warmer than normal fall for many.
 
An above normal temperature forecast does not mean cooler weather will not occur, but that it will be limited in intensity and length.
 
The forecast for this winter will be dependent on if El Nino conditions develop in the Pacific. At this time, the likelihood of El Nino occurring during the winter months appears to be dropping, but there is still time for the pattern to change. If El Nino were to develop, warmer and drier conditions would be favored across the northern United States while cooler and wetter conditions would be expected across the southern United States.
