It’s Wednesday afternoon and Helaine and I are sitting in the family room with the Phillies on TV. Behind us the door to the deck is wide open and fresh air is blowing in. Birds are chirping. We hear their songs clearly because the air conditioning is off. This is very un-Junelike.
It’s currently 74° with a dew point of 42°! If you’re meteorologically challenged that just means it’s cool and dry.
The observations come from my nearest reporting airport–Meriden. Weather Underground has a feature where I can look back on this date with one click of my mouse. It’s easy to quantify how unusual this is.
The Average High Temperature is 84 F with a historical range of 80 F to 91 F
The Average High Dew Point is 67 F with a historical range of 57 F to 73 F
The Average Low Dew Point is 57 F with a historical range of 47 F to 68 F
In weather nothing good lasts forever. This dry air will be gone by the weekend.
In the meantime today is sorta perfect… well except for the going to work part.
