Forecasters are calling for another warmer than normal summer. At least for most of the country, they say. We can expect wetter weather, too. That will be in a band of states. These stretch from Texas to Montana.

The National Weather Service's summer outlook says there is a greater chance for hot weather in Alaska. And pretty much everywhere else. 

There are states that may not be as hot. These include Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska are also included. Kansas and parts of Missouri and Colorado may not be as hot.

Stephen Baxter is one of the forecasters. He said it may not be as hot as recent summers. That is due to rain-soaked soil. It is from a wet spring. It may keep the heat down. 
Baxter forecasts a wetter than normal summer for Alaska. It may also be wetter in parts of the already soggy Great Plains.

Meteorologists also said April was the second warmest April on record globally.

    I like hotter weather but also dislike it. Warmer weather means getting outside more and doing activities like riding bikes, tubing, jet skiing, water balloon fights, swimming etc.But hotter weather also means more peeling from sunburns, excessive sweating, more spending money to buy water,etc. The weather is already hot enough as it is and the weather doesn't need to get hotter.

    I think that a warmer summer will be great! You can get super tan and eat a lot of popsicles. If it is a wet summer all of your flowers can get watered. I think that it is bad that Alaska will be warm because all of the polar bears and seals will be way to hot and possibly die if the weather is to warm.

    For a person like me, having a warm summer is good because I like to swim, fish, ride my bike, hang out with friends and pretty much anything outside I like. The warmer the better!
