Happy Summer everyone!

I hope everyone got a chance to enjoy the longest day of the year yesterday. We went to bed at around 22:30 and it was still quite light out.

Don’t expect the Summer weather to hit just yet though. After our big hot spell there in June we’ve been back to normal June temperatures. And now going into July we’re looking at a continuation of this pleasant pattern for a while. There is the possibility of a little bit of moisture slated to come at us this week as well as next on the super-long range outlook.

After that? Maybe we’ll get into the traditional July swing of things.

Oh, one more thing. I’ve added a couple of Graphs to the “Search Previous Weather Data” screen. You can now see the temperature and wind/barometer readings for any time period that you choose there.

Enjoy!
