The U.S. Seasonal Drought Outlook was released on February 20, 2020, and is valid from February 20 to May 31, 2020. It is a subjective assessment of the U.S. Drought Monitor and the NOAA Three Month Outlooks. The Outlook helps predict whether drought will emerge, stay the same or get better in the next three months.
The Seasonal Drought Outlook for the next three months shows a relatively large area along the West Coast and Southwest will be experiencing drought.
