      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.
