Farmer’s Almanac Predicts Hot and Rainy Summer for Northern California

With some late-spring precipitation boosting snowpack and water levels throughout Northern California, the area is still primed for the devastating impacts of another summer plagued with drought. There’s probably not a whole lot Mother Nature can do to solve our water issues quickly, but according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, we may actually have a wet summer ahead.

The oldest weather predictor in the country released their upcoming summer prediction and it brings some good news for Northern California. While the forecast is hot for the region (when is it not hot in NorCal during the summer?), it also predicts the region will be wetter than usual.

Here’s their full prediction for the United States:

As you can see, the entirety of NorCal and most of California are predicted to see a hot, rainy summer. The prediction of heat is a little disconcerting, but if there’s any precipitation during the summer, it will significantly help mitigate the impacts of extreme drought.

Of course, these things are never full-proof. The predictions are based on 30-year statistical averages prepared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and updated every ten years. Weather trends and events are predicted by comparing solar patterns and historical weather conditions with current solar activity. In 2008, the Almanac stated that the earth had entered a “global cooling” period that would probably last decades, which, as you know, is the exact opposite of what actually happened.

But if they’re right and we have a wet summer, that could be HUGE for NorCal. Let’s see those summer rain dances:
