Clouds pulled a fast one and rushed in this afternoon. Couple of sprinkles dancing around out there, but we’re essentially dry…now and into the weekend.
Got this in my twitter feed this afternoon:
@pbouchardon7 First 5 days of June 2015 with a high below 60. Last four years combined? 4 such days. Sigh.

Matt brings up a good point. The start of meteorological summer has been very disappointing. Those two 49 degree days early this week sunk us. Although the month is young, we’re over 13 degrees below normal thus far.
We need to turn this ship around. Although the weekend is brighter, it’s not flaming hot and the beach days are marginal…at best.
Nonetheless, many manage to make it a beach day as long as the sun’s shining, so who am I to judge? With water temps in the low 50s, onshore winds all weekend will keep the highs in the low to mid 60s. Elsewhere plan on upper 60s or low 70s.
We eluded to the change in the weather pattern next week, and it seemed like summer would be returning in earnest by the middle of the week. Now it appears that has been confirmed and amplified. Heat will pour in here and humidity will follow. Highs should soar to the upper 80s to near 90 by the end of the week signaling an end to this cool snap.
But not for good. The jet stream will still be around, and we’ll be prone to cool downs and shots of refreshing air. As far as highs in the 40s and 50s, however, we may have seen the last of those for a while.
Make it a good, safe weekend.
