It has been an interesting spring in the listening area with weather ranging from damp and chilly to the more recent mid-summer-like conditions.  AccuWeather reports wet weather and severe storms will keep extreme temperatures at bay in the Northeast this summer, while heat and humidity plague the South. Unlike the summer of 2016, when drought conditions gripped the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, this summer will bring on-and-off wet weather to both regions, especially in June and July. The moisture will help to hold back extreme and prolonged heat. AccuWeather says northeastern I-95 cities, including New York City and Boston, may end up with slightly more 90-degree days than normal – although still fewer than last year.
