Good morning bloggers,
Is it summer already? It was 44° degrees on June 1st and 47° on June 2nd. The 47 tied a record low, and the 44 was one degree shy of the record. That was a very cool start to summer if you consider summer began on June 1st. We call June 1st the beginning of meteorological summer. Astronomical summer begins on the summer solstice which is 6:09 PM on June 20th. It has always been confusing, so which one do you prefer?
Vote for Meteorological Summer (June, July, August) or Astronomical Summer (June 20th to September 22nd)?
The weather pattern is now blocking up:
A trough off the west coast is going to send it’s energy over California and Oregon and then it will be forced way up to the north over a big ridge extending from Kansas to northwest Canada. The energy will then dive south over the Great Lakes states. This pattern will likely prevent us from having any chance of rain for a long time. We will go over the details of this dry weather pattern on 41 Action News today and tonight.
Summer Breeze, the Killdeer bird in front of my house, is due to have babies within a week or so. He is doing well and here is a picture I snapped yesterday. I don’t think he was too happy with me. He just doesn’t like it when I get this close.
Have a great Monday and thank you for stopping by and spending a few minutes on the blog.
