Weather Talk: Summer looks promising after a mild start to June

I have been asked on numerous occasions if I think the rest of this summer will be as cool as June has been so far.

My response has been that this month has been far from cool, that in fact the month has been running 1 to 2 degrees above average.

With two days in the 90s, five days in the 80s and many of the days in the upper ranges of the 70s, this month has recorded plenty of warm days for our climate. Although the weather is noticeably cooler today, looking forward, this month appears to be on track to finish either near or slightly above average.

My original summer forecast was for this month to finish near or slightly below average, with July and August finishing above average. With a mild June start, the summer is looking promising, at least temperature-wise.
