Forecasting the Hottest Summer Yet: A Look at the Farmer’s Almanac 2024 Prediction

As summer approaches, anticipation mounts for those who relish the warmth of the sun. However, if the Farmer’s Almanac’s forecast for 2024 is anything to go by, this summer might just be one for the record books, promising scorching temperatures and the potential for thunderstorms across various regions of the United States.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, 2024 is predicted to bring about the hottest summer on record. This poses a wide range of challenges for many, including those who are required to comply with OSHA’s new and improved (stricter) guidelines around worker safety and heat exposure. The forecast suggests that the Mid-Atlantic region should brace for a significant amount of rain, while the Southwest is expected to remain predominantly dry.

If 2023 Is Any Indication…

Last year’s summer is cited as the current benchmark for extreme temperatures, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports a one-in-three chance that 2024 could surpass it. Whether you are mandated to comply with OSHA or other heat safety mandates, or are concerned with protecting your most important assets, it’s undeniable that this summer will make its mark on the weather records.

Specifically, June is predicted to be warm, humid and interrupted by thunderstorms across many parts of the country. The forecast indicates a muggy summer for most, except for the Northwest region, where more moderate temperatures are expected.

New England is slated for yet another wet summer, while the Great Lakes and Midwest regions can anticipate a plethora of thunderstorms. The Southeast states and the Mid-Atlantic region won’t be spared from soaking showers and steamy days.

In Texas, sizzling temperatures are expected, with July being stormier than August. Meanwhile, the North Central region may experience a fluctuation in temperatures, with occasional incursions of cold Canadian air amidst an overall warm season.

The Southwest and Pacific Northwest regions present contrasting forecasts, with the former expecting hot, dry conditions and the latter forecasted to be dry but with milder temperatures.
