Last night, the sky cleared just enough for a view of Jupiter and Venus passing by on their closest apparent approach. You can still see the dynamic duo tonight between sunset and 11:00 PM when the pair will sink below the horizon.

Tonight’s nighttime spectacle will be the Full ‘Thunder’ Moon.

Drier air has worked in thanks to high pressure diving in from Canada. The end result is a ‘win’ in the forecast department which will play out as a string of dry days from now through the entire 4th of July weekend! Let’s hope this forecast doesn’t change as we near the Holiday weekend.

Here’s the full Fox 8 Forecast.

June is right at normal for temperature but has recently trended cooler. A modest temperature rise may allow a handful of days to push into the 80s°F next week.

But don’t look for July to bring any big changes. Some long-range models suggest a continuation of a somewhat cool and potentially moist July.

The same models suggest that the cool pool will break off and slide southwest, allowing a warmer and less wet pattern for August. I sure hope so.
