If you’re aching for summer, you don’t have to wait much longer. While the feeling outside is “summer-like”, and meteorologically we’ve already started summer, astronomically it’ll be summer-like at 6:59 p.m. (CDT) Friday. This is when the solstice in the northern hemisphere occurs. It is the day of the year where we experience the longest daylight – about 15 and a half hours!
If you prefer to look at it another way (acceptable as well), after today we will now start to lose daylight as we head toward…we won’t say it.
The weather is looking and feeling very summer-y as we head into summer – highs in the 80s, some muggier air out there, and a chance of those pop-up afternoon thunderstorms. Some of them could produce some larger hail and stronger winds, but we’re not anticipating anything widespread.
