Texas and United States DROUGHT OUTLOOK
On April 10, 2014, the International Research Institute for Climate and Society released an update of El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) conditions. The consensus forecast indicates that ENSO-neutral conditions will prevail through spring 2014 throughout the Northern Hemisphere. However, there is now a greater than 50 percent chance of the development of El Niño during the summer or fall. This will likely mean average rainfall through summer 2014. If El Niño does develop, increased rainfall across the southern tier of U.S. is possible.
