If the Farmers' Almanac is correct, summer 2014 will be “exceptionally” hot and humid in Pennsylvania.

The Farmers' Almanac predicts the northeastern part of the United States will be humid, wet and thundery this summer. "Oppressive” humidity is expected throughout the northeastern part of the country, including in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, the Farmers' Almanac predicts.

“We predict that while warm weather will initially be slow to establish itself, by July summer heat will have arrived in full force across much of North America,” the Farmers' Almanac said.

Hurricane activity is expected to be near or below normal activity, according to predictions by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Hurricane season begins June 1 and goes through November 30.

I'm just waiting for summer to **start**! After last winter, I'm ready for anything - a little warmer, a little muggier, that's OK. Just no freak snowstorms in July, that's all I'm asking ...

There is nothing worse than heat so oppressive you can't breathe or move. Feeling like you have to get in AC or you'll keel over, always feeling sweaty...ugh. Give me the winter and snow, a warm sweater and a fireplace with a glass of wine any day of the week. I hate summer and hot weather, the bugs, the yard work complete with poison ivy...and when everything is scorching hot. Yep, winter should be looking real good to you real soon.
