I suppose it's appropriate to discuss strong to severe storms on the first day of summer.
Summer officially rolled in at 7:28 this morning. The sun is now at its highest point in the sky that it ever gets for us: 23.5 degrees north of the equator. This is the longest day of the year, with about 15 and a half hours of daylight. The bad news is the days start getting shorter after today!
We don't see this too often, but take a look at the Storm Prediction Center's severe outlook for today. Here it is for tomorrow/Tuesday. And here it is for Wednesday. All three days in a slight risk for severe weather development! Our soonest chance at seeing a round of strong to severe storms with damaging winds and heavy rain will actually come late this evening and overnight into Tuesday morning as an upper level disturbance moves across the state.
