OKLAHOMA CITY – The summer heat has forced many people to seek refuge indoors, and some are even dreaming of cooler weather.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac is giving some people hope after it released its latest predictions for the coming months.
This winter, the almanac believes that Oklahoma residents will experience warmer than normal temperatures with below-normal precipitation.
Researchers say the snowiest periods of the season will occur in mid- and late November, late December and early February.
When it comes to spring, April and May are expected to be warmer than normal with near-normal rainfall.
If you don’t like the heat, researchers say you’re in for a treat.
“Summer will be slightly cooler than normal, with rainfall below normal in the north and above normal in the south,” the almanac claims.
The hottest periods of the season will be mid- to late June and mid- to late July.
When fall rolls around, researchers expect warmer than normal temperatures and more rainfall.
