The U.S. Seasonal Drought Outlook was released on March 19, 2020, and is valid from March 19 to June 30, 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. Florida has also popped as an area to watch after experiencing one of their warmest and driest March’s on record.
