Farmers Almanac Predicting a Scorcher Summer for Illinois
We had a very mild winter and now I think we are about to pay for it. The Farmers Almanac is predicting the Midwest to have a sizzling scorcher summer.
Just like Keith Urban said, it's going to be a "Long Hot Summer." Make sure the air conditioners are working it looks like it's going to be a HOT ONE this summer. According to the 2023 Farmer's Alamanic, the Midwest could see temps at times soar into the 90s and perhaps top 100.
Now, I'm not a fortune teller or meteorologist, but if this is going to happen I think I need to start saving some money to pay my energy bill. We also expect extremely hot days at least once if not twice during the summer months so this really isn't that much of a surprise. I was just hoping we could have a summer, just once, where it's not doing to be hot as Hades.
Looks like in June we will get lots of rain, but as soon as that 4th of July holiday weekend starts that is when temps will start rising.
July is forecast to start of quite hot in many areas with some sweltering conditions for the 4th of July holiday. The middle of August is when you may want to find a cool spot to hide from the conditions outdoors. Plenty of three-digit temperatures and high humidity are expected to heat up most of the country.
