Meteorologists are finding it challenging to predict the weather for the early summer, in particular for Texas, according to AccuWeather experts. 

A worldwide climate trend linked to higher temperatures, El Nino is knocking at the door and is more likely this year.

AccuWeather released its summer forecast last week. 

While the outlook gives forecasts for several parts of the United States, such as El Nino transition to affect the fire season in Northern California, senior meteorologist Paul Pastelok tells Axios that Texas isn't as obvious.

As we simply don't know how hot it may become in the central to the eastern half of Texas this year, he states, "That's the one region of the country where our confidence level is a little bit low."

AccuWeather has already released some summer forecasts.

  • According to meteorologists, this year's shift to summer will be quicker than in prior years.

  • Texas is also anticipated to have higher-than-average cooling demand.

  • The Gulf of Mexico may be at risk from tropical storms, although the highest activity is anticipated from Louisiana through Florida.

  • Any reduction in agricultural output might drive up food prices and worsen the nation's overall food insecurity.

NOAA says El Niño is now a virtual lock to develop by summer. 

When comparing this year's patterns to prior years, Pastelok claims Texas is not in a "bull's-eye" for increased hurricane activity, but yet advises people to be ready.

Perhaps this summer will include storms that initially appear to be spinning toward Texas before changing course.
