No Heatwaves in Sight for the Southeast

As we just saw record cold high temperatures in the Carolinas this week, some are wondering if this summer will be below normal overall. While the pattern lately, especially since May has been overall below normal or near normal, there has been some warm stretches of days. Things will slowly heat up today and into this weekend and even early next week.

However, any extreme heat will be kept at bay. The Euro model is usually very good with medium-range temperature outlooks, and has parts of the Carolinas below normal for late June. The upcoming final 12 days of June may be hot at times, but also below normal for this time of year.

For those that love the heat, this month may not be the month for you. If you dislike the heat, then this June is going to be the easiest one for you in recent memory. Things could start to finally heat up as we head into July and the Independence Day holiday weekend.

At least it’s summer, and we can enjoy without any stifling heat in the near future!

If it were in the upper 90s, many would probably be complaining, perhaps event myself 🙂
