This was made by analyzing similar late June-early August periods back to 1895 & taking into account current trends combined with short- & long-range model ensemble data.

The normals are a combination of multiple NWS COOP site averages in the area.

This is an average of conditions for these time periods, but variability will exist, specifically on rainfall.  It does give you an overall summary of the regime, however.  There will be more outlooks and posts on the overall pattern & the drivers behind it ahead.
