As for me, I like a sunny and hot summer, but not crazy heat. I would love 85* and sunny every day, except my Wife April would want her garden to get some cloudy days and rain. So will it be a "very hot" summer? Let's look at what forecasters are calling for this summer in New Jersey.



In a recent Patch article, Accuweather said "From June to August, temperatures are forecast to run at least three to four degrees above average across the Garden State, which will translate to higher energy bills for local homes and businesses, AccuWeather said." In addition to the "heat" we could see some severe weather this summer too.


"Showers and thunderstorms in the region could bring much-needed breaks in the heat in June and July, but drier weather could pave the way for even hotter weather in August, the private weather company said."


So what kind of summer are you hoping for? Get your beach badges yet? Post your weather comments below.
