The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: This Summer Will Be “Oppressively Hot” and Rainy

This summer is going to be oppressively hot

On the off-chance you were worried that the end of this horrible winter will irreparably throw off your small talk game, a new thing to complain about: according to the Farmer’s Almanac, New York is in for one hell of a muggy, rainy, blazing hot summer.

“It looks like it’s going to be an oppressively hot and humid summer for the New York area,” Almanac managing editor Sandi Duncan told the Post. “It’s going to be very humid and thundery.”

After this week’s cold snap, the Farmers Almanac team predicts we’ll officially transition into the warm months, with heavy summer rain persisting from June through August. Oh, also? It’s looking like a “severe hurricane” will move through the East Coast mid-September. “We can’t say right now how strong of a storm it will be, but it will likely affect much of the mid-Atlantic, including New York and New Jersey,” said Duncan. So, purchase your waterproof sandals accordingly, I guess. Summer 2014: best summer of our lives?
