8 to 14 Day Precipitation Outlook

Shown above are the NOAA Climate Prediction Center (CPC) 6 to 10 day, and 8 to 14 day temperature and precipitation outlooks. As represented by the blue shading, there is a 60% percent chance of below normal temperatures across North Dakota in the 6 to 10 day outlook from August 14th to the 18th, and a 50% to 60% chance of below normal temperatures in the 8 to 14 day outlook from August 16th to the 22nd. This is in response to forecast guidance suggesting a large upper level trough of low pressure to be in place across central Canada and the central United States by mid August. Opposite of an upper level ridge of high pressure which often yields above normal temperatures and drier weather, an upper level trough often spells below normal temperatures, and above normal chances of precipitaion across North Dakota, highlighted by the greeen shading in the 6 to 10 day, and 8 to 14 day precipitation outlooks. Normal high temperatures for mid to late August across western and central North Dakota are in the mid 80s.
