The climatological summer begins on June 1, but the seasonal calendar says June 21.
Either way summer is here and many are wondering how it might play out for you if you are sitting poolside to stay cool in the typical heat and humidity for Georgia . It has been a weird start to the summer with ice still sitting on the Great Lakes to record drought out west. We will not feel the impact of the cold Great Lakes but will continue to watch the birth of El Nino as we head through the summer of 2014.

June in Atlanta will be start to heat up. We'll see record temps by the end of the month and this will roll right into July. El Nino and its impact will be felt by mid to late summer and it will continue hot. Most El Nino driven summers are hot and dry in Atlanta and we are on track to set 9 daily record high temps this summer.
The graph above shows the big push toward El Nino with most of it coming in the fall and winter. It could start as early as mid to late June or as late as August but all signs point to El Nino. El Nino also tends to put a halt to the hurricane season as west to east winds shear off the top of developing tropical systems.
