Can you believe it? Meteorological summer officially starts in 27 days with a summer outlook that looks like it will bring us some summer heat!

With average spring temperatures across Northern Ohio we are looking to step into the summer of 2016 with warmer-than-normal heat.

The main contributor is a once strong El Nino pattern that is slowly fading. This pattern has been the strongest in 18 years, which caused Northeast Ohio to see a snowfall deficit of over 30 inches during the 2015-2016 winter season.

With astronomical summer not ready to take off until June 21st, Ohioans can expect to feel more warmth in late May. The warm weather is calling for more 90 degree summer days. 

The 2015 summer season brought Northeast Ohio only five days with toasty temperatures in the 90s. 

June 12: 90°

July 29: 93°

August 2: 90°

September 3: 90°

September 7: 90°

With the heat expected to come on strong for the 93 days, 15 hours, and 47 minutes that make up summer, it's something to look forward to as spring comes to an end.
