Little bit of chilly rain this morning, didn’t amount to much though. Skies cleared and temps are shooting up, jumped from 57 to 70 in under 2 hours. Looks like I’ll have to fire up the a/c tomorrow with high 60 dews and mid 80 temps. 

Almost 1 pm, and rain just ended. Temps still in the upper 40's with overcast skies. Sat showing clouds trying to hang for a while yet. Might get lucky in a couple hours and see some sun. What a cold June day so far.

For Detroit, the highest hourly heat index on record back to 1942 for the month of June is 109F on June 28, 2012. So I'm going to have to take the under there. :lol:

I’ll take the under also. Sun shines on a dogs ass once in awhile though. Would be pretty crazy to get that high of a heat index this early in June.

in fairness I did read a lot of hype about an early, hot dry start to summer.   LC was constantly beating the Morch drum all winter.    It seems like we haven't been able to keep a true heat wave locked in for quite awhile.  Instead it's 2-4 days of above and then a break to equally anomalous lower temps.   Kinda wouldn't mind a good ole fashioned shirt soaking lemonade drinking hankerchief wiping heat wave.

Larry Cosgrove wasn't wrong with his prediction of a very warm Spring (although yes, he was wrong about it being dry). 2024 was the 6th warmest Spring on record for the US.

Not even Morch was a wall-to-wall torch the entire month. And even if it were, statistically-speaking, it's unrealistic to hold that or 2012 in general as the  standard for a warm temperature pattern.

And yes, Cosgrove was a few weeks too bullish with the transition to eastern ridging / western troughing for Met. Summer. But while delayed, it's definitely still happening.

Meanwhile a couple hours drive south we’ve reached 81 under sunny skies. First 80 degree day since the 4th.

Up to the upper 50's right now. Hazy overcast with the sun trying it's best to break through. If it does, a quick jump into the 60's before it wanes. Got around a quarter inch of rain. That'll help with tomorrow's stuff.

Batch of showers moved through here this morning. Expecting svr wx later this aftrn-eve, and could get a little nasty. Highs in the low 80's with upper 70's near the shore of the Lake.

Stratus deck currently, but should break in a while. The stms in S MN keeping a cloud deck over the Cities. If that continues, might interfere with development for them later. 

Update: Sun starting to break through just as I posted this.

Cleared off nicely. Been out soaking up some rays on the deck. Very light lake breeze keeping temps/dews at nice levels here in town. Low 70's currently (upper 60's on the shoreline) with dews in the low 60's at 2 pm.

The subtitle of this thread is “Stick a fork in it already.”

What’s not to like about the most beautiful weather to begin June that we’ve experienced in years in this part of the Subforum, and to now get to enjoy a nice early summer heat dome, with possible some ring of fire action? :sizzle:
