Summer Has Arrived

Image
The first two weeks of June in 2009 have been cool. So cool that since 2000 no first two weeks of June have been this cool. Is it an official record? I do not know, but I'd like to find out. As for Summer arriving, it indeed has. Max temperatures are above 70 and as far out as I am willing to believe a forecast, things will stay this way. The cool start is now history. This past week brought some drenching rains early, nearing the 2" by the week end which is keeping us well saturated thus far. (OSNW3 June Observations)

A Cool Start To June

Image
The heat is on... inside the house. Temperatures were seasonable for the most part this past week with a weekly max of 77.0°, but no more then 12 hours after that reading the temperature fell 25° and then didn't move much the following day. Currently as I type this (15:30-Jun 7), the temp stands at 56.7° threatening yet another low max daily temperature record. Precipitation was light early in the week, but as the week came to an end a system pushed through dropping nearly a half inch of rain. Foliage is thick around here and it's getting close to my favorite part of Summer, when everything is at it's peak green. (OSNW3 June Observations)
