As of late June, 2017 is estimated to be an average to above-average year for WNV. At this time, we expect about 83 cases in 2017, and the accuracy of this estimate will improve as mosquito data are received and analyzed. This forecast is based on higher-than-normal temperatures and humidity in early 2017, slightly earlier-than-normal detection of human cases and infected mosquitoes, and weather forecasts of a warmer-than-average summer.
