Sunday’s temperatures in the mid-80s gave northeast Johnson County residents the first taste of summerlike weather for the year. According to the National Weather Service, by the end of May, we should see average daily temperatures climbing to 79 degrees. But the last two summers have been anything but average. In 2012, eastern Kansas saw one of the hottest and driest summers on record. Last year, however, saw a deviation towards cooler weather, though dry conditions remained.
What type of summer are you expecting this year? If the summer weather were going to be outside of the norm, would you rather have it be cooler or hotter than average? Which concerns you more, a hot summer or a dry summer? Why?
