Now I understand why droves of humans pack up their lives and head south to 'Florida, You Say.' But as much as I love the beauty of New England, I find the winter months more and more difficult to tolerate.

Every year, around the beginning of April, I search for a long-range forecast for the greater Danbury area to gaze at those daily temperature numbers as they start to rise into the '60s, '70s, and '80s.

I've found that Accuweather is one of the most reputable weather services for predicting Connecticut's weather patterns. So let's look at what kind of weather we can expect for the spring and summer of 2022.

According to Accuweather, temperatures will be in the mid to upper '50s through April 11 and then move into the low to mid-'60s for the rest of the month.

The first two weeks of May show temperatures in the low to mid-60s; around May 16, temps will begin to rise into the lower '70s. Check this out! I'm seeing three sunny days from May 15 through May 17. Yipee!

Memorial Day weekend looks promising with temps in the low to mid-70s under partly sunny skies. June is predicted to be wetter than average, with temps fluctuating between 70 to 85 degrees. According to, July will be wetter and more relaxed than average, with highs from 75 to 90 degrees. is telling me that most likely, August temperatures should be normal with average highs between 75 and 90 degrees. The lowest risk of rain will be from August 19 - August 28.

If truth be told, meteorologists will tell you that the seven-day forecast can accurately predict the weather 80 percent of the time and a five-day forecast can accurately predict the weather approximately 90 percent of the time. However, a 10-day—or longer—forecast is only right about half the time.
