      Does This Warm March Mean A Hotter Than Average Summer?

      Many are enjoying the 70 and 80 degree days we're experiencing, now, in mid March, but does this mean we'll endure a sweltering summer of hotter than average temperatures?{}

      Let's take a look back at the top 10 hottest March's and see{}how the following summer temperatures turned out.{}{} Keep in mind, March's average high is 46.8, so the top 10 warmest March's were anywhere between 4 and close to 10 above average!

      From this chart, you'll notice 7 out of the 10 warmest March's featured below average summer temperatures.{} So, again, we can't say that since we're experiencing a stretch of warmer than average March, we'll have an unusually hot summer.{} It is interesting to note that the hottest summer was set back in 2010 with an average temperature of 81.3 (that is #9 in the chart).{} March was above average, but wasn't the warmest March, by far.{}

      So, how are you feeling about the warmer than average start to March?{} Do you think, after the 3rd warmest winter on record, and the warmer than average temperatures we're experiencing in March, we're in for an extra hot summer?{} Take our poll on WJLA.com.
