It's been a mild spring and a cool May here in southwest Georgia but just because the weather has been mild doesn't mean we're going to have a cool summer.

Weather experts predict the summer of 2014 will have above average temperatures.

July temperatures usually range around the mid-90s, so people can expect the thermostat to reach well into the upper 90s or low 100s.

Officials say this heat may lead to an active hurricane season.

"The hurricane experts out of Colorado State University are predicting a very active hurricane and again that kicks off on June 1st," said FOX 31 Meteorologist Mike Morrison.

He says cooler temperatures in the spring are not uncommon.
