Second day in a row of below normal temps.
But you knew that, right? Well, how about this:

That’s cold. Like pattern-changing cold. And that’s definitely where we find ourselves on this fine June evening.
We talked about this shift yesterday. And it seems to be confirmed by the models today. What does it mean for a return to summer? Well, that’s taking a back seat in the coming days…which I’m sure you also knew, right?
Now let me tell you something you might not know. The coldest wind chill of the day was 37° at Blue Hill. Boston hovered in the low 40s all afternoon. As we shift to cool, Texas will dry out. And Europe is going hot. Way hot.
How this plays out in the next couple of weeks will be semi important, but not critical to the remainder of the summer forecast. As has been the case in previous years, June does what June does. July and August are on their own. Remember I said this…in case we slip into a very ugly, chilly setup in the next two weeks.
In the meantime, sun returns tomorrow. (Was that angels I heard?) After a good, badly-needed soaking, the lawns and gardens are looking forward to it as much as we are. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news is that the temperatures are still below normal. Way below thanks to the northeast wind. We’ll see some improvement in that department in the coming days, but think baby steps….like just when they start to walk.
