Welcome to June!

Our members reported a vast mix of weather in May - from a heat wave in the east, lots of rain to the Southeast, violent storms in the Midwest, snow in Colorado and Wyoming, and cool/damp in the Northwest.

June brings us our summer solstice (longest daylight day of the year) which is on the 20th. This is the start of astronomical summer. Meteorological summer begins on the 1st.

Full moon in June is also on the 20th and is called the Strawberry Full Moon. June is when the harvest time of the strawberries are.

Greetings- In the Pacific NW our strawberry started mid-May, about two weeks early due to the warm spring weather. Now with hot temps the picking will quickly come to an end soon.

Once again a very comfortable night with an overnight low of 52°. High yesterday was 85° once again and calling for the same today.

A weather news artcle I read calls for a big pattern change upcoming for the Northeast. Looking at the forecast for next week shows highs in the lower 70's and lows in the upper 40's - now that is more like it!

Kind of warm overnight with a low of 63°. Yesterday's high was 88° again. Calling for a high of only 76° and humid with scattered thunderstorms.

Still looking forward to next week when the pattern changes to give us highs in the lower 70's.

55 this morning with a high of 95 predicted. It is supposed to get warmer the next week. Just finished a huge bowl of fresh picked strawberries with a smidge of granola, 1/2 a banana, almonds and walnuts. That has been breakfast for the last 4 weeks now. I have been picking strawberries for a month now and I am still loving them. Shortcake anyone?:laugh:

We've gotten a little :rain: overnight, quarter inch or so. It quite 'balmy' out with nearly 60º at this early hour. Headed to 70º or so and hopefully some sunshine.

Our weather has closely mirrored coaltrain's as of late but maybe not quite as warm. The rain is currently moving out and the clouds are breaking up.

Just finished up using the Ryobi pole saw and now sitting on the back porch, our outdoor living room. We are listening to the thunder to the south, can you hear it coaltrain?

I posted the screen shot of our rain gauge earlier with 0.40". That's where it stands now. We needed some rain too, I couldn't believe with less than half an inch, how wet the yard seemed.

Our total rain for yesterday ended up with that 0.66". But once the rain stopped it got muggy - temp and dew point stayed at 66° all night.

High today forecast for 82° which probably means 88° again and already quite humid. Then it looks like that cold front I am looking for will be coming through on Sunday.

Many areas need the :rain: that's been pounding Texas, seems to be feast or famine sometimes.

Our latest :rain: that just ended totaled 0.17" . . . . Not enough to make a real difference but glad we got it.

Current temp at 7am is 54.3º. Sky is clear, sun is up, and we're headed for 86º today.

Saturday we're forecast to be ~97º and Sunday 95º.

Little too warm for me, time to get Carol's hammock setup. :thumbup1gif:
