Becky and Don Gansauer of Canton wrote during last week's cold and damp, asking for this summer's forecast. I know. I'm ready for warmer weather, too. The Climate Prediction Center's long-range forecast shows no strong trends for this region - hot or mild, wet or dry - from June through August. Could go either way, depending on the pace of a weakening La Nina in the Pacific. The CPC does expect dry weather in the Northwest and unusual heat in the West and Deep South.
