outlook, precipitation, temperature, August

Temperature and precipitation outlook for the contiguous United States for August 2020. The outlook provides the probability (percent chance) that August temperatures and precipitation at any location will be in the upper, middle or lower third of the climatological record (1981-2020) for July. The colors (red or blue for temperature; brown or teal for precipitation) indicate which outcome is most likely. Darker colors mean higher chances of a given outcome; not more extreme conditions.
