July 2015 Forecast
• The below average readings across the central part of the country are favored to shift a bit eastward during the July. This will likely result in cooler than usual conditions for the Midwest and Great Lakes Region
• The East Coast is predicted to see normal temperatures. Thus no prolonged periods of excessive heat are expected for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic
• In contrast to the Eastern U.S., above average temperatures are projected to extend across the West Coast. As a result, a large number of 90+ degree days can be expected, especially for inland locations
• In congruence with the typical El Niño year, plenty of rainfall is anticipated for the Great Plains, Rockies and parts of Florida
• With a lack of organized systems, much of the Ohio River Valley and East Coast should see below normal precipitation amounts. These areas will likely have rely to on typical summertime thunderstorms for rainfall
• The dry trend in the Pacific Northwest is forecast to linger through July

August 2015 Forecast
• Cooler than normal conditions are not only projected to continue across the Central U.S. and Midwest for August, but expand into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic as well. Thus, several shots of cooler air will likely have it feeling like early fall for much of the country, especially towards the end of the month
• Similar to July, positive temperature anomalies are predicted to be mostly confined to the West Coast
• Typical late-summer showers and thunderstorms will likely result in near normal rainfall totals for the Midwest and much of the Mississippi River Valley
• Wetter than normal conditions are anticipated to continue across the Plains, Rockies and central Florida
• Unlike the first two months of summer, the Pacific Northwest is expected to return to more normal precipitation patterns
• Unfortunately for folks along the East Coast, below normal rainfall is predicted through the end of summer. Also with suppressed tropical activity expected this year, the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will likely lose one of their avenues for summer rainfall
