It’s officially summer in Seattle…

June 22, 2010

…but the weather didn’t seem to get the memo! I don’t usually mind the gloom–what’s more, it’s one of the reasons we moved here in the first place! It’s getting kind of old, however, after 271 days and counting. Sunday’s high was 56 degrees. Monday’s high was 63. They are saying we may hit 70 today (and it’s sunny, yay!), so I have my fingers crossed. A start is a start, after all.

Here’s an excerpt from yesterday’s paper:

“Seattle is on a stretch of 271 days and counting without reaching 75 degrees, said Dennis D’Amico, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The previous record was 254 days.

“We have crushed that,” Mass said, adding it’s likely temperatures won’t reach 75 until July.

It’s not just that it’s not warm — it’s been far colder than June’s usual high of 70.

At 56 degrees, Sunday’s high was just 1 degree above the lowest high ever recorded at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on a June 20. That’s a typical mid-April high.”

      Not very often! I think we’ve had four or five sunny days in the 60s this year…once summer finally decides to REALLY arrive, it’s sooo worth it, and is just spectacular: really sensational, long long days, mild temps, beautiful scenery. I have my fingers crossed!
