A toasty spring is on its way

The Climate Prediction Center has released their outlook for spring 2017, and it is a warm one.

At least half of the country has a better than 50/50 shot of being warmer than normal between the months of April and May. From the CPC press release on their outlook:

For April through June, above-average temperatures are favored for a large area stretching from the Southwest eastward to include the central and southern Plains, Great Lakes, Southeast and Northeast. Most of Alaska and Hawaii are also favored to see above-average temperatures. The greatest odds for above-normal temperatures include the south central Plains and eastern U.S. No areas in the U.S. are favored to see below-average temperatures this spring.

Warmer springs generally mean stormier springs. Looks like we are in for some interesting times next month!
