UNDATED (WJON News) -- Despite a cold spring, the Farmers' Almanac says that won't last long.

The Farmers'Almanac says the summer months in the North Central U.S. will be broiling and wet...

June 1st is when meteorological “summer” begins, and according to our forecasts, this month will be stormy, especially in areas east of the Mississippi River, and then turning quite warm nationwide by the end of the month.

Overall, much of the country should be warmer than normal. The heat will be unrelenting in parts of the country, persisting from late June through early September.

July is forecast to start off quite hot in many areas with some sweltering conditions for the 4th of July holiday (See what’s predicted in your backyard here.) 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.

Rainfall will be above normal for the central U.S. reaching into the northern midwest and eastward to the mid-atlantic coast. The Farmers' Almanac says there will be occasional bouts of heavy precipitation, primarily rain showers, and big thunderstorms.
