The first storm of summer produced more winterlike and springlike conditions from Friday into Saturday. This slow moving area of low pressure will gradually push out of the area through Sunday. Even though the weekend will slowly dry out, temperatures will remain cooler than average. The first full week of summer will have sunshine and warming temperatures, but isolated thunderstorms are likely through Monday and Tuesday. By the middle and later portion of the week, the thunderstorm intensity will increase. Isolated severe storms are possible Wednesday and Thursday. At the same time, temperatures will warm up close to seasonal averages in the 70s to around 80 for highs. Another area of low pressure will move in from the Pacific late in the week with cooler temperatures and a few showers. Isolated showers and thunderstorms with slightly cooler than average temperatures will continue for the final week of June. It does not appear that intense summer heat will develop until around the 4th of July.

Have a great first weekend of summer!
