After a cold and snowy winter, much of the nation has begun to thaw during what has been a pleasantly warm spring, but summer will bring several sizzling months. Are you equipped to handle the heat? North America’s most recognized source for long-range weather forecasts, The Old Farmer’s Almanac will be your guidebook for the hot days ahead, with answers to all your weather-related questions!
The summer solstice marks the official start of summer, which falls on June 21 this year. For most of the country, the solstice symbolizes the beginning of a season that will be marked by above-average temperatures. The only exception to this heat wave will be the northern Intermountain Region, where the summer is anticipated to bring cool weather and normal precipitation.
Rainfall across the rest of the nation will be a mix of extremes, with many regions expected to experience precipitation levels that are below normal, while others will see an exceptionally wet summer. From northern New England into the eastern Dakotas, from Texas and Oklahoma through the Desert Southwest, in southern Florida and in the northern Pacific Northwest: Brace yourself for dry summer heat! These regions will see less rain than usual, creating a recipe for plenty of hot, lazy summer days . . . and the possibility of drought.
From northern Florida up to the nation’s capital, keep an umbrella handy! Above-average rainfall mixed with summer heat will create an almost tropical climate for our friends in the Southeast.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac has been making its trusted weather forecasts since 1792. This past winter, the Almanac predicted the cold and snowy winter through which much of the nation suffered.
