What's the subject of this sentence? Is it "forecast" or "we"?
The subject of this sentence is "forecasts" because "forecasts" is associated with the verb "are" (before "more likely"). You can find the subject of a sentence by finding what is associated with the verb or verbs in the sentence. "Forecasts" is not associated with the phrase "are we expecting a particularly hot summer or an unusually cold winter" because this phrase is an interjection, meaning it is not grammatically associated with the rest of the sentence.
