Spring Saftey
National Weather Service Safety Tips

In case you are wondering what the Spring Outlook is...in short, we are expected to remain in Neutral ENSO conditions through the Spring and into the Summer. Historically, neutral ENSO conditions favor warmer and drier Spring conditions. The 3 month climate outlooks show better chances for above normal temperatures this Spring, but equal chances on the precipitation potential (equal chances for above, below or near normal precipitation; basically not a strong enough signal to favor either category). However, neutral ENSO conditions don't provide us a strong signal on if it will be a near normal, more active or less active severe weather season. The one guarantee is that we WILL have severe weather, and we DO need to be prepared!

Thank you and have a great weekend!
