It appears we could be in for more rocky weather on our first day of summer.
However, the latest, long range climate forecast from the National Weather Service has some good news in store. In fact, the climate experts have some great news, especially if you're planning a vacation in July or August.
Mark Ewens, National Weather Service: "We're going to see a bit of a pattern change as we get into that July time frame… warm us up, dry us out and then the bulk of the summer beyond that into August, should also remain relatively warm and close or a little below normal on the precipitation. That's what it look like right now."
But, Ewens says for the next week or two as we roll into summer, we'll just have to live with our normal, stormy weather pattern for this time of year… and keep a close watch on what's happening in the sky.
Mark Ewens: "Just pay attention to the weather because obviously over the next couple of days, severe weather is still going to be a threat and we've had wind damage, flooding rains are still a risk with the soil being saturated. So, pay attention to the forecast."
