What kind of summer weather can we expect?
Summer will officially arrive Saturday.
MLive and Farmerweather.com meteorologist Mark Torregrossa says the coming summer looks really nice, despite the thunder and rain we've been seeing.
Torregrossa says there is a hot dome of air creating a stationary front over Michigan, which is bringing in the storm system that spawned tornados in Nebraska, and he says the storms could continue over the weekend.
He also says El Nino may have an effect on our summer.
El Nino is when a large part of the Pacific over South America and Australia begins to warm up more than normal – which could help the second half of our summer stay cooler and lead to a warmer and drier winter.
Torregrossa predicts overall precipitation this summer will likely be normal.
