ST. LOUIS — Summer is right around the corner, and if you’re someone who enjoys the warm weather, you might be in for a treat. The Farmer’s Almanac’s forecast for 2024 predicts that this summer could be the hottest one we’ve ever seen. However, it’s not all going to be clear skies; the season is also expected to bring its fair share of rainstorms.

Specifically, the Mid-Atlantic region is preparing for a significant amount of rain, while the Southwest is anticipated to stay mostly dry. This upcoming weather pattern could pose challenges for those who thought last year’s summer was unbearably hot, as 2023 holds the current record for the hottest summer.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has reported that there’s a one-in-three chance that 2024 could surpass last year’s record temperatures. Whether you’re a fan of the heat or not, it looks like this summer will be one for the record books.
