As we awaken from another winter, what can we expect from the weather this summer in Albany?

This may have been the longest winter ever, or at least it felt like it. With not much going on during the pandemic and everyone just staying home more, I am sure you also got that pent-up feeling and you are ready to get out and about in the warmer months ahead. So what can you expect from Mother Nature this summer?

According to the Northeast summer outlook from the Old Farmer's Almanac, it will be a little bit of a mixed bag. The guide says our temperatures will be "slightly cooler than normal" and we can also expect "above average rainfall." That said, we will see spells of hot weather in June, July, and August followed by cool and rainy conditions in September. Knowing how the weather works in Upstate New York, all of this means it will probably be a rain-free season with a long streak of 90 plus degree days. That's how Mother Nature rolls in the 5-1-8.

But that is the beauty of forecasts: we can speculate all we want, but eventually, we just need to live it and see what happens. After spending way too much time indoors this past weather, no matter the weather is - for all of us here in Upstate New York, I am sure it will do. It could snow all summer, and it would still be one of the best summers ever. Ok, maybe not that crazy  - but you catch my drift. It will be nice to get out and enjoy the past times we may have missed out on last year!
