So far it's been a nice summer. I've seen more people outside doing things this summer than at any time during the last summer. 

Correct. People are much happier, yard parties everywhere. Just an overall joyful mood across the state.

My next door neighbor has probably used their pool more  often  this summer than all of last summer. The weather has been ideal for outdoor activities. And the rain has kept the lawns looking good.

Seems like the same person gets angry at that too?

That’s a good point. Tippy seems angry year round as the weather swings his emotions like a pendulum. But you’re right, it’s particularly noticeable in the late spring and early winter.

What type of grass are you using?

Been all over the board with hand seeding and hydro. Tried KBG but didn't take hold. Recent hydroseed they used Site One sun/shade mix. seems to be working well. But, when I handseeded some, not so much. Lawns are a pita.

It's 6/17 and haven't installed. I honestly cannot recall a time where I have not needed it this late. There is always a couple of nights that aren't comfortable by 6/17...but this year..nothing a window fan cannot handle.

Bruckmann's True Value Hardware in Lawrence, Ma sells a seed by the name of perennial pacemaker. The seed grows well in shady and sunny areas. And it grows fast. I'm not sure if Bruckman's sells their products online. Perhaps you can call them to find out if they do. 978-686-4105. Even if they do not sell online they may be able to tell you how to order it from another company.

I've seen this posted at least a dozen times in the past several days. 

Summer is going to come, just relax and wait for it.  Right now, enjoy the low dews and 70s to low 80s. 

It IS summer, wx is awesome...warm with moderate dews. My sarcasm stems from the people clamoring about cool and dry when it clearly hasn't been. Lol wooooshh

Well then it probably needs to be clarified... I think of "cool" as relative to normal.  Not like hat and gloves weather but when I hear cool I think of relative to normal.  

Up here there's no beating around the bush, it's been much cooler than normal. 

The 3 ASOS climate sites in NVT east of the Green Mtn Spine: 

1V4... -4.8

MPV... -3.4

MVL... -3.0

Theres no other way to describe those departures (and today will be another decently below normal day despite full sunshine) for the first 16 days of June.  

Down south it looks much more tempered with BDL at only -0.1 and ORH at -0.6.  

But the northern half of New England is riding some healthy negative departures.  No other way to spin a -3 to -5 style pattern up here.

someone said it was dry? might have to go to cutting the grass 2x per week if we remain in this pattern

Most of the warmth has come post cold frontal. When we try to build ridging and dews into the region we've been getting wedged. Rarely SNE has gotten in on the warm sectors, but even the one on Saturday had fairly low dews. My warmest daily min so far came in April (4/20 ironically).

It'll come though and when it does we'll be hitting the beach and the pools. Until then we yardwork and nape.

I think dry has been referring to to dews...not necessarily precipitation.

NAM FRH grid doesn't have much QPF at all at BOS, LGA, ALB triangulum and synoptically only has local downpours associated with warm frontalysis limping through anyway... The NAM is actually not a bad model at < 30 hours with convective initialization.   

It's not impossible that modest elevated instability slips in-between the grids and busts someone ...who of course then comes in here to explain why the model's wrong to everyone -

Yeah, it's basically a normal temp/precip theme down here. No big heat but not cool at all. Of course we want the consistent, oppressive heavy heavies but that would be unusual in mid June.

How are June departures running in your neck of the woods?

I honestly was surprised how low they were up this way at MPV/MVL/1V4.  The weather has been nice and enjoyable but guess its been enough to average -3 or lower so far in the means.

Matches a gradient pattern from SNE up this way in terms of departures.... but no one would call June a warm month relative to normal to this point.

But like I said, this time of year below normal but full sunshine is still pretty damn nice outside.

Today for example...right now running -5 for the daily mean but it's plenty hot in the sun for it to feel like summer.

Suffering through another below normal June day.

What do you get when you super-impose a Maunder Minimum over a Globally warmed atmosphere ?
