Forecasters Expect Drought to Continue Through Winter

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The St. Louis summer has many people looking forward to fall. But will autumn actually change the pattern the area has been stuck in? National Weather Service Meteorologist Ben Miller says the weather models tell an interesting story.

The drought could continue into the Fall and possibly the Winter months. Plus, the Fall outlook also suggests above normal temperatures.

Miller says the region could experience a weak El Nino pattern in the Winter months. A strong El Nino typically means a warmer, wetter season, “but it doesn’t look like it should have a significant influence on drought conditions, unfortunately.”

Miller says this Summer ranks as the fifth driest in History.
