Seasonal Correlations

I am often asked if because this season is – insert hot, cold, dry or wet – does that mean the next season will be – insert hot, cold, dry or wet—and usually the reference is that the next season will be the opposite of what is currently occurring.  In other words, is there a correlation between what is occurring now and what we can expect in the future?  Although May has been mild, overall the cold spring has many people inquiring if a hot summer is coming as that would then “balance” the weather. This summer will not necessarily continue to be cold, or end up extremely warm based on what has been occurring these past few months as there is no correlation.
