The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts a warm, seasonally stormy summer for Wyoming in 2024.

Meanwhile, a Cheyenne-based meteorologist with decades of experience in predicting Wyoming weather says he thinks this summer will be a little drier than last year, with average or above-average temperatures.

The publication predicts similar weather for much of the Rocky Mountain region and most of the Midwest. You can see the Farmer's Almanac summer weather map here.

Similarly, for July 4 the publication says the Rocky Mountains and the Plains can expect fair, dry, and very warm conditions. It also predicts a hot, dry Father's Day on June 16, although technically that holiday falls a few days before the official start of summer on June 20.

Nationally the publication calls for a wet but warm summer for most of the country, saying parts of the country are in for a "summer soaker."

The Almanac says it predicts the weather based on a formula developed by founding editor David Young in 1818. That formula includes the positions of the planets, sunspot activity, and other factors, adding that the exact formula is a "brand secret."

So What Does Don Day Have To Say About This Summer?

Last week we asked Cheyenne-based meteorologist Don Day Jr. for his thoughts on the upcoming summer weather.

Here is what he told us:

''1.) not expecting this summer to be as wet as last summer, which was unusually wet, thinking precipitation will be closer to average 2.) temperatures will be near to above normal for most of summer in a nutshell, a summer of about average precipitation and a bit above normal with temperatures.''

Day is the founder and president of Dayweather Inc. in Cheyenne.
