Farmers Almanac Calling For a Hot and Dry Summer For Our Region
As we see much of South Jersey hitting around 90 degrees today, this may be a sign of things to come this summer here -- that is if you believe the prediction from the Farmers Almanac.
The Farmer's Almanac have been an annual periodical since 1818, giving long-range predictions about the weather among many things. The almanac was founded here in New Jersey (Morristown), and was a part of The Garden State for over 135 years.
The almanac did call this winter just about perfect for our area - they saw the mild "La Nina" pattern come to our area. Their predictions have been extremely accurate, which is why they have been in business for so long!
Based on their predictions for the Mid-Atlantic region, South Jersey should see a predominantly warm summer that will lean on the dry side. Although June will have its passing thundershower moments, the Farmers Almanac is seeing several days in the 90s this month - the chance for 100 degree temperatures loom late in the month (between June 24th - June 27th).
The middle of July may be the next best chance for the thermometer to hit 100 (between the 12th and the 15th), and the wettest part of the summer looks to come in July as well (between the 8th and the 11th).

You may not be happy with this prediction for the summer weather of 2012, but do not bet against the Farmers Almanac.
