Thursday, June 21 is the official Summer Solstice and start of the new season. However, you wouldn’t know it by today’s weather. It’ll be a summer-like stunner all day Wednesday.
Expect a mostly sunny sky today with just a touch of morning fog through favored valleys. The temp starts off in the cool 40s and 50s (with a few mountain upper 30s) but reaches into the upper 70s, approaching 80 degrees by this afternoon. Light south wind 5-10 mph. Tonight, mostly cloudy north with a small shot at a light shower as a weakening cold front slides south out of Canada. Those showers won’t make it farther south than Rt. 2 and any leftover clouds will quickly clear Thursday morning. Nighttime low, mid 50s to upper 40s.
Thursday is another fabulously sunny day with a comfortable high in the low to mid 70s. Light north wind 5-10 mph. Friday, mostly sunny. Near 80 degrees. Unfortunately, that’s where the copy-and-paste forecast comes to a screeching halt. Saturday, rain chances increase, especially towards the afternoon and evening. An isolated thunderstorm is possible, though downpours are more likely. Mid 70s. Lighter, scattered showers are on the docket for Sunday and Monday.
Have a fabulous day!
