Summer-like temperatures take a timeout ✋
On Friday, it reached 95 degrees in Poughkeepsie, a new daily record high for June 2nd.
Looking ahead, we’ll be hard-pressed to reach 80 until next weekend! The wind will blow from the north, which isn’t a warm wind direction.
Talk about a hard right turn from Mother Nature!
🏜️ The temperature change is one thing, but we need some rain. May was the 3rd driest May since records began in 1931 — only 1993 and 1964 were drier. The week ahead will feature some rain, but not enough to overcome the recent deficit.
The week will be defined by a pinwheeling disturbance in the upper atmosphere, stagnantly swirling over the Northeast.
It will bring cooler than average temperatures and cause afternoon showers to pop up over the region from Tuesday-Friday.
Here’s what it looks like on the weather map:
Monday: dry and comfortable 👍
Tuesday: similar to Monday but with a chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm and wildfire smoke from Canada 💨
Wednesday: like Tuesday but a little cooler
Thursday: even cooler with scattered PM showers again possible 🌦️
Friday: similar to Thursday
Saturday-Sunday: turning warmer, back above 80 with the shower chance likely fading 📈
The week of June 12th looks cooler than average to start, followed by a potentially significant warm up. Mid-to-late June will probably take a turn toward hotter temperatures, so enjoy the cooler weather while it lasts 🥵
Winter at the beach 🤙
Meteorological winter arrived in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere this past week, but you wouldn’t know it looking at these photos…
You wouldn’t know it by the way it feels either — temperatures have been well above average in my corner of the world due to an ongoing marine heatwave.
The place you are looking at is called Omaha. It’s a beach town in the northern part of the Auckland region. It was a great place to take my new drone for a spin!

The view from the ground didn’t disappoint either!
🌈 New Zealand is the unofficial rainbow capital of the world thanks to the right combination of meteorological tendencies, including a low winter sun angle and frequent showers followed by plenty of sun…
Hope your week is a wave of color ✌️
