Long Range Forecaster Predicts Normal Summer

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A tornado has ripped through north Minneapolis and the temperature has reached 103. That’s all happened before the official start of summer, which will be at 12:16 p.m. Tuesday. 

“I think we’ve already hit our high temperature for the summer when we hit 103. I don’t think we’re going to see that again,” said Long Range Consulting Forecaster Frank Watson.

He said he expects average temperatures and rainfall in the coming months.

“It’s not going to be a really hot summer. It’s not going to be cold, but it’s just not going to feel like it’s a really hot, burning, summer,” said Watson.

Watson said he also expects this summer to linger a little longer than last summer.

  • MIke

    Normal weather? We have had two or three weekends without rain since winter. This is worse than living in England or Seattle……………

    Junuary,following the winter we had was bad enough.Although There is some possibilty,due to filling aquifers and a weight of water differnce for some midwest earthquake faults to act up soon. At least there are no volcanoes nearby.However,should the oceans rise beyond a not impossible point Minnesota could become a series of islands! Aside from that,have a great summer! How about all the help from the politicians? We ate our dog last week and this week we are looking at each other the same way we did him! Hope you are all doing better!
