Sunny and 75 days are just on the horizon, well, for most of us. Summer is just around the corner, and the sunshine is already calling our names. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration just released their annual summer weather predictions for each state, and it looks like its going to be a hot one for most of America! According to a detailed map, roughly half of the country will endure above average temperatures this coming season.
So what exactly does this mean for Texas? The Lone Star State is predicted to receive above average temperatures this summer for the most part with the Westernmost portion of the state being hit with higher temperatures than typically expected. There is up to a 70% chance that most of Texas will receive above average temperatures, and an 80% chance that Western Texas will receive above average temperatures as spring turns into summer.
The NOAA also shared a map that depicted the average amount of rain that is predicted to fall across each region this summer. Texas is expected to receive a typical amount of rain this coming season, leaning neither above, nor below the state's seasonal average. The Western edge of the state could see drier than normal conditions.
