Thursday at Six: Justin's Summer Forecast

Updated: May 15, 2019 03:08 PM

We've all been wondering the same thing; After a long, cold winter, what will our summer be like?


The outlook for upcoming seasons is based on weather trends that have happened in the past. Sometimes--the weather past repeats itself!

Back in 2009, it was dry, and Eric Anderson, the golf pro at Enger Golf course said, "We're having to apply water at night and even during the day sometimes." 

Once again, it looks like we're heading toward a dry and cool summer--an El Nino summer. It is the complete opposite of an El Nino Winter, which is warmer and snowier.

As a National Weather Service Meteorologist said, "For precipitation, we've been looking at slightly below normals for precipitation and this is over the past 60 years." 

What might that mean for severe weather, possible drought conditions and the impact on your vacation plans?

Find out this week, as WDIO Storm Team Meteorologist Justin Liles breaks down our Summer Forecast, Thursday on WDIO News at Six.
