Rejoice, y’all — spring has officially sprung, and with that, the promise of warmer days, blossoming landscapes, and yes (takes deep sigh) pollen. Personally, we think the weather is an underrated conversation topic, so we peeked at some of the major weather trends headed our way over the next few months.
Here’s what you can expect this spring in Cowtown and beyond based on predictions from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center.
Think warm. Expect to see warmer-than-normal temperatures across much of the United States, with the exception of the Pacific Northwest, California coast + upper Midwest, where temperatures are expected to be slightly cooler through at least April.
In Fort Worth, there’s a 40-50% chance of temps being hotter than usual. Usually, we see highs of 76° in April, 83° in May, and 91° in June.
Keep your umbrella nearby. There’s a 40-50% chance that rain will trend below normal through July. Usually, Fort Worth averages 4 inches of rain in April, 5 inches in May, and 3.4 in June.
The chances of a drought developing will likely remain through June 30. Tarrant County has a burn ban in place until Tues., July 5 for unincorporated areas, like Alliance. Once outdoor burning is allowed again, the county asks that you follow these requirements.
