Ask Joe – What are your thoughts for the upcoming summer’s weather


There is an old saying that the seeds of summer are planted in the late spring and early summer. Unlike winter where there are a lot of correlations to the world’s ocean temperatures and the upcoming winter patterns, the summer is not as predictable from the same things. However, there is a correlation to wet weather in the middle and latter part of spring helping feed back to a humid, but not as hot summer with more wet weather. 

Therefore, if our pattern continues to shift back to a wet one over the next couple of weeks, we may be setting up for a wetter summer again, though not likely as wet as last summer. Also, warmer than average sea-surface temperatures off of the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico will also help to feed more moisture to the Eastern United States.
