Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

Hopefully most of you were more on the ball on this one than I was.  I knew the Summer Solstice was coming, but it was a particularly hectic week and I never had a chance to double-check on precisely the time.  As it turns out, the solstice happened while I was answering posting on the WeatherCat forum, so this is already old news.  Still I do have a picture to mark the occasion:



It is what used to be a typical example of the weather in Northern California for June.  Fog in the morning giving way to afternoon sunshine.  Alas, what was typical isn't anymore.  Even the Monterey office of the National Weather Service remarked at surprising lack of fog this year.  Without the fog, the temperatures have varied more the high side.  It is certainly looking like a hot and dry summer for California and much of the West.

For better or worse, Summer 2020 is here at last.

Cheers, Edouard
