June Trending Dry and Warm
We enjoyed a warm first weekend of June and we're bracing for another hot one!
As you can see we've had plenty of above average days so far with our average monthly temp running about five degrees above normal.
Many people will flock to the beaches this weekend, but head's up, the southerly wind will be strong on Saturday. Out on the big pond, waves will build 2-4' and the National Weather Service has put a Small Craft Advisory in place during the afternoon and evening because of the moderate chop expected on the lake.
Speaking of water, we're starting to see a shortage there as well.To date we should have just over an inch of rainfall, but we've collected just over a half inch at this point. Other than a small chance for storms Sunday or Monday across the far northern parts of the area, we are looking dry the next four days. Our next chance for solid precipitation comes along the vicinity of a cool front. That front appears to work in for Wednesday afternoon and night. After a dry Thursday another rain chance comes Friday. But, you may need to do some watering beforehand with the very warm air mass expected to hang around the next week.
Lastly, since this is our first long stretch of hot weather, here's some tips on hot weather safety. Don't overdue it this weekend, and enjoy the summer weather!
