PM Update: Pretty close to "normal" June weather

By Ian Livingston

One more mild day before heat overruns area

You know it's a fairly pleasant day when the main debate in the CWG comment section is about whether or not it's 8 out of 10 or 10 out of 10 on the Daily Digit scale. Under mostly sunny skies and combined with a fresh breeze from the northwest highs reaching the mid-80s most spots don't feel too bad. We get one more day of pleasant summer weather before we heat up again, and once it starts it could last a while.

Through Tonight: A great evening is ahead as temperatures drop back into the 70s around sunset. With less humidity, temperatures will be able to keep going further down tonight than recently. Readings should settle near 60 in the suburbs to the mid-60s downtown.

Tomorrow (Friday): If you liked today you'll enjoy tomorrow. Another day of lots of sun and warm temperatures is ahead. This time, we'll see less in the way of winds and perhaps slightly warmer temperatures. Highs again reach the mid-to-upper 80s.

European flooding: Flooding has been making news in the U.S. and elsewhere lately. In the past month, several storms have afflicted portions of Europe causing major flooding that has claimed both lives and property. The Big Picture has put together a series of images of the floods.

Is there a reason for all of the above 90 degree days we've been having so far? I also see that the long term forecasts are calling for above 90 into July. A few days can be dealt with but that long is just draining. Do you see this trend dissipating where we settle into normal highs of the mid-upper 80s with only a few upswings vs this seemingly constant low-mid 90s with only a few downswings to our average temp? IE - do I have to move to Alaska for the summer?
