NOAA Seasonal Outlook Tool: Precipitation

The Climate Prediction Center (CPC), under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) delivers real-time products and information that predict and describe climate variations on timescales from weeks to years, thereby promoting effective management of climate risk and a climate-resilient society. The CPC products are operational predictions of climate variability, real-time monitoring of climate, and the required data bases, and assessments of the origins of major climate anomalies. The products cover time scales from a week to seasons, and are available for use by the public or private sector where outlook forecasts are important, such as in agriculture. For more information on how to read the Three-Month Outlook maps, see:
