June showers bring…?

They say April showers bring May flowers, so what do June showers bring? I guess we’ll find out soon enough as this week looks to be filled with several bouts with rain and chilly daytime temperatures. In fact, today’s high temperature was nearly 15 degrees cooler than normal! At this rate, tomorrow and Wednesday look very similar as cooler, unsettled weather will linger leaving clouds, showers and highs in the 50s the main theme over the next 48 hours.

The real “rain event”, at least by June standards, should arrive by Thursday as thickening clouds and steady rain will be the theme. Highs will also struggle to make it much beyond 50. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear reports of Kitsap locations staying in the low 50s all day, nearing 20 degrees below normal! Friday and Saturday will unfortunately follow the same trend: mostly cloudy skies, highs in the mid to upper 50s and showers.

Forecast models don’t show signs of warming or drying until Sunday (although earlier models were suggesting we could go all day Saturday dry as well…we’ll see…). Skies will partially clear and showers will decrease. This will allow temperatures to scoot their way close to normal in the mid 60s.

At this point light has officially been spotted at the end of the tunnel. Forecast models have been consistent in showing temperatures in the low to mid 70s by next Monday and beyond, but for now we’ll be a little conservative until we see more model agreement. But dare I say, there are projections for the 80s later this month?

So maybe that’s what June showers bring! 80 degree weather 🙂 Only time will tell.

Have a great evening everyone!
