The Climate Prediction Center, a branch of the National Weather Service, says April is showing equal chances of normal precipitation.
Scott Baker with the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates the Climate Prediction Center is showing nothing that indicates things are going to above normal wet or below normal wet.
Looking at the rest of the spring season, Baker indicates the rest of the spring is showing an above normal amount of precipitation, however, the amounts above normal are not always certain.
According to Baker, forecasters use a lot of data from 5 to 10 years or even the past 30 years to predict forecasts and rainfall amounts. Additionally, current weather patterns also play into their predictions.
