Summer begins and it feels like it

Happy Friday and first day off summer!  Today summer officially began at 1:04 am.  It’s the summer solstice and the longest day of the year.

Summer is here and it feels like it!  We’ll see highs in the middle to upper 80′s today.  Humidity values won’t be too bad but will rise for the weekend.  It’s going to be great to hit the pool today.  But don’t forget the sunscreen we have a high UV index.

Highs will be near 90 for the weekend.  It’s going to feel more muggy too.  So hot and humid for the Vectren Dayton Air Show.

The heat and humidity will stick around not only for the weekend but for the beginning of the work week as well.

There’s a slight chance an isolated shower will pop up thanks to the heat and humidity this weekend.  Most of the area will be dry but late in the afternoon/evening a shower may pop up.

This weekend we’ll also see a full moon and it has gained the nickname “supermoon.”  The moon orbits the Earth in an ellipse which means there are times the moon is far away from the Earth and close to the Earth.  This time it’s close and is called the perigee.

If you have weather photos of the moon or of any activity you are doing this first day off summer send them to report!t.  Have a great weekend!
