As people across much of the United States prepare for winter storms and the cleanup that follows, thinking about warm weather and summer activities is understandable.
Now, as if on cue, the Peasant Almanac released its Summer 2023 Forecast to give readers a resource to help them make plans — and also know what to expect. By the way, an indication of what’s to come for most of the US, the Peasant Almanac calls the forecast “Summer Forecast 2023: Sizzles Return”.
“Our forecast points to a long, hot summer of unrelenting heat that will last from June through September,” Peter Geiger, editor of Farmers’ Almanac, said in a statement. “Regions to the north will also experience very warm temperatures and, in places, dry conditions.”
In fact, “Summer may bring record-breaking temperatures that could make this summer the hottest summer of the last century,” according to the forecast.
Let’s get straight to the point. Here it is Peasant Almanac 2023 summer weather forecast for United States.
The big picture
This summer’s heat “will seem unrelenting to people in many parts of the country,” Geiger noted. From June through early September, temperatures will soar above 90 degrees in many states and could even surpass 100 degrees, the forecast explains.
“July is expected to start out quite hot in many areas, with some muggy conditions for the July 4th holiday,” the forecast continued. “Mid-August is when you might want to find a cool place to hide from the outdoor conditions. Lots of triple digit temperatures and high humidity are expected to heat up most of the country.”
Meanwhile, the Northeast will experience thunderstorms and possible heavy rain between June 20 and June 23 — the Ohio Valley can also experience heavy rain then. At the same time, showers and even some thunderstorms are expected in the south-eastern, northern and central areas of the country.
On the other hand, according to the forecast, it will remain hot and dry along the west coast at the end of June.

A word on forecast accuracy
The Peasant Almanac notes that it has been publishing accurate long-distance weather forecasts since 1818. Key to these predictions is a set of astronomical and mathematical rules developed by David Young, the publication’s first editor.
“We still use the rules originally established by David Young in 1818, but we have supplemented these rules with other methods developed over the following 205 years that take into account studies of solar activity, lunar cycles and similar weather patterns in relation.” on El Niño and La Niña cycles recorded by NOAA,” said Caleb Weatherbee, the official forecaster for the farmers almanac, told travel waiting in an exclusive interview.
By the way, Weatherbee is a real person. The name “Caleb Weatherbee,” on the other hand, “is actually a pseudonym passed down through generations of almanac forecasters and was used to hide the true identities of the men and women behind our forecasts,” Weatherbee told us.
