    For the record, the NWS predicted the midwest drought to persist long before Accuweather’s press release Monday: http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/expert_assessment/seasonal_drought.html. It is a shame that the article portrays Accuweather’s announcement as news when the NWS has been saying this for some time.

  2. Dan,

    Indeed, the drought is not “news,” and I’m all about giving NOAA credit where credit is due… It is front-and-center in NOAA’s spring outlook released in mid-March, but specifics on drought conditions for the months of July and August will probably not be officially released by NOAA until the summer outlook is released several weeks from now. Until then, they do have these forecast maps (Legend is here)
