All Down Hill From Here

According to National Weather Service records the past 30 days has ranked as pretty much the chilliest and wettest such stretch for the final month of spring. All of that is behind us know, right? Well, now that the summer solstice has come and gone it is time to start preparing for winter. Its less than 26 weeks away you know. From here on until December 21st the days will be getting shorter and the elevation of the midday sun will be a bit lower each and every day. Fortunately for us though, there is about a 4 to 5 week lag time between the longest day of the year and the warmest day of the year, so at least we have something to look forward to.

There are a lot of clouds out there right now...cirrus near us, and stratus comin' at us! These high clouds will texture the sky for a good part of the day, but we will still see the sun shining through them. Afternoon temperatures today will reach the upper 70s, after hitting the mid 70s yesterday. There will be a few (A FEW) showers in the area tomorrow and Friday, and the HoopFest weekend forecast is still looking good...mild and dry.
