Will this mild winter lead to a sweltering summer?

That was the question in today's Facebook story of the day.

The short answer is no.

Chief Meteorologist Mike Morrison says there is no correlation between a mild winter and a summer with above normal temperatures.

However, that will happen this year.

"We may have a hot summer, the climate prediction center is forecasting above normal temperatures as we go through June, July and August of 2012," says Morrison.

Morrison says we experienced a similar situation last year.
