We expect a hotter-than-average summer in D.C. area after cool April and May.

The summer of 2020 is likely to be the 11th hotter-than-average summer in a row.

'We just closed out an abnormally cool April and May. In fact, the last time both April and May were cooler than average was 2003. But, with the year’s first taste of 90-degree weather likely this week, there are already signs that June might not behave as the two previous months did.

[June outlook: We predict a hotter-than-average start to summer]

We expect that this summer will extend the streak of hotter-than-average summers to 11 straight years. There is only an outside shot of a cooler-than-average summer.

Hotter-than-average summers have become the norm in Washington. Ten of D.C.’s hottest 12 summers on record have occurred since 1990, and seven of them since 2010. (However, when climate normals are reset next year, based on average temperatures from 1991 to 2020 instead of 1981 to 2010, “normal” will be recalibrated.)'>>>

2. Yes, and more tomorrow.

HEAT begins Wednesday, I think.
