Forum editorial: At last, a break from cool, wet weather

Dare we hope it? The weather gurus expect the weekend to be, well, like summer. After days of unseasonably cool, wet and cloudy weather, the sun will shine and warm the air to near 80 degrees, the forecasters say.

Eighty degrees in mid-June should not be a headline-maker, but early June was remarkable for a string of days with daytime highs below 60 degrees. A record was set for consecutive days with sub-60 highs.

Maybe a cool spring will become a memory as summer takes hold. Maybe – and meteorologists say it’s happened before – we’re in for a sunny, hot summer. Here’s hoping it starts this weekend.
