Kansas City could be in for a hot and soggy summer, assuming a 200-year-old publication is correct.

Die-hards swear by the Farmers' Almanac, but most meteorologists say its accuracy is iffy, at best.

"Summer's going to start off with a boom, thunderstorms and a lot of rain," said Sandi Duncan, Farmers Almanac managing editor. "(We will have) a warm, but dry, Fourth of July, and then it looks like it turns quite cool in the middle of September."

If hot, humid weather is not to your liking, you may want to head west, where cooler weather is predicted.

"It's not going to be a terrible summer, but it's definitely a little bit more hot and wet than most people would enjoy," Duncan said.

The first official day of summer is June 21.
