“Swallows fly high, clear blue sky. Swallows fly low, prepare for a blow.”
Though it is a bit premature to say that summer is in full swing, June certainly has all the elements at its disposal. The longest daylight hours can push thermometers toward that elusive 100 degree mark in a few rare instances, and the first potent spell of muggy, humid weather can easily occur with the normal storm track well to our north. However, the ground is cool, and the departing ice in Canada is enough to send a late-season cold spell south. This can trigger thunderstorms, and might be followed by a late-season frost in the colder mountain valleys. Still, June is sunnier than any of the preceding months of the year, briefly blocked by billowing clouds, or a cloud of black flies at their annual pesky maximum.
