Start of Summer 2018

Memorial Day weekend is often considered the start of the summer season and has many people wondering what to expect weather wise the next few months.  By analyzing weather and oceanic conditions in the past that are similar to what has been occurring recently and then looking at the resultant summer conditions, leads me to believe, that temperatures this summer will finish near the average,  which would be warmer than 2017.  Of course, average here means swings from very warm to cool, chilly, rainy days. But averaged over the three months, I feel we will be close to our current 30 year average for summer temperatures.
