It’s been a cool, dry start to summer.   Assistant State Climatologist Pete Boulay:

“For June so far we’re actually falling a little bit below normal again. We’re just a few tenths a degree below normal across the state but also an inch – inch-and-a-half below normal for precip. Topsoil has dried out a bit however we still have a surplus from the state of the year across the state.”

Summer Solstice 2019 is today  (Friday)– the longest day of the year and the first official day of summer.
