Climate Connection

Above Average Precipitation  
Relative to the climate region, precipitation increase is accumulated precipitation above the average values. Across the southeast, there has been a long-term upward trend of accumulated precipitation during the fall. In general, precipitation is expected to continue to increase during the fall, winter, and spring months.
