Let's hope the coronavirus will wither away during a hot Albany summer.

Now that we are a good month into Spring, it's time to start looking ahead to summer and according to the Weather Channel, it could be much warmer than normal here in the Capital Region. Climate models and the Weather Channel outlook are calling for above average temperatures for the Northeast for June, July and August.

This forecast pretty much follows the warmer trend we have had since late last fall. Ever since that huge snowstorm we got in early December, for the most part it has been milder than normal here in the Capital Region, right through Spring.

While we definitely don't want oppressive heat this summer, maybe it would not be a terrible thing with the coronavirus around. I have ready varying reports on whether or not summer will slow down the virus like the flu, but hey, they best way to find out is by bringing the heat!
