Dry Summer?

Believe it or not, one of the most common questions asked of me these days is the prospects of a dry summer.  There are many examples historically of a wet year being followed by a dry year, or wet followed by dry.  Plus, with the recent lack of moisture, I think a lot of people are wondering if we are in for a quick switch in precipitation as have happened in the past.  I would not be surprised at all if the summer finishes below average for precipitation in most areas, although one thunderstorm can make a lot of difference in our climate, but the months of April and May could end up being different than our upcoming summer as Springs and Autumns don’t correlate well with other seasons.
