Summer is the shittiest season. There, I said it. Everyone sweats harder than a teen getting their browser history checked; we’re constantly reminded that almost everyone is out of shape and everyone always feel like they’re on fire. According to the Climate Prediction Center, this may be about to change.
Via the Tulsa World:
Oklahoma will likely have cooler and wetter than normal weather conditions for June, July and August, according to long-term projections.
The Climate Prediction Center, which issues long-term weather outlooks, has the state with a 33%-40% chance of having cooler-than-normal temperatures for June.
It also shows the state has a 40%-50% chance of being wetter than normal.
As we’re publishing this, western OKC is dealing with flash flooding and some of Tulsa is still underwater, so I think I speak for the entire state when I say, no shit.
However, I will say that I’m thrilled to have some cooler temperatures for the summer months. Air conditioning can only do so much before I begin looking like fat Thor from Avengers: Endgame.
El Nino, or warmer-than-normal temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean, is the reason for the outlook.
“For the month of June, El Nino is expected to continue, with a 70% chance that El Nino conditions continue through Northern Hemisphere summer,” it said.
Tulsa averages 4.72 inches of rain in June, 2.96 inches in July and 2.85 inches in August.
Sure, we could talk about how this is one of the adverse effects of global warming but I’d hate to get people’s panties in a twist. After all, it’s not like the problem is looking us squarely in the face at this point…
I’m just hoping everyone knows how to swim for the summer time. The good news is that you don’t have to worry about missing out on pool time. The pool is coming to you.
