Only the Southeast, Northwest and California will likely be spared. That's because forecasters a La Nina system to keep rain away.

Climate Prediction Center operations chief Ed O'Lenic also says a high pressure system that has kept tropical storms away from the East has moved, making a U.S. hurricane strike more possible. The last hurricane to strike the U.S. was in 2008.
