The historically higher-than-normal temperatures this winter appear to have been just the start. AccuWeather is predicting higher-than-normal temperatures over the next three months throughout the United States.
Places such as Orlando (3.5 degrees Fahrenheit above the long-term normal temperature), Cincinnati and Washington, D.C., (both 2.8 F above) and Atlanta, Memphis and Detroit (each 2.5 F above) will experience higher temperatures in April, according to the long-range AccuWeather for Business forecast.
After that, Cincinnati and Washington (2.8 F above), and Detroit, Burbank, California, and Portland, Oregon, (2.5 F above) stand out as being particularly higher in May, while Minneapolis (2.8 F above) and Atlanta, Salt Lake City and Dallas-Fort Worth (each 2 F above) should expect higher temperatures in June.
“There is almost no part of the country that we are predicting to be below normal in any of the three months, which is unusual,” said AccuWeather Founder and CEO Dr. Joel N. Myers. “This may be a first.
The higher temperature departures do not mean it will be warm all the time; if that were the case, the numbers would be even higher, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. For example, a downturn in temperatures at times in the northern Rockies and northern high Plains along with the Great Lakes and Northeast may come in early April.
However, the temperature departures will be significantly increased in the Southeast in April – Florida, in particular – and in the West, especially California and Nevada, in May will feel the heat.
“If there is a correlation between the weather and the new coronavirus that can be a positive to helping slow down the spread as we transition to spring in the Northern Hemisphere, that’s what everyone is looking for right now,” said Jon Porter, AccuWeather vice president of AccuWeather for Business.
