Area Weather: June feels more like April but summer
This is June, right? It felt more like April over the weekend. Highs were about 20 degrees cooler than average over the weekend. We did pick-up some much needed rain over the weekend and on Monday. At least we didn't pick-up any snow like portions of North Dakota did.
Dickinson, N.D., received two inches of snow over the weekend! The last time that they witnessed this kind of snow in June was over 60 years ago! I bet some geese are confused and ready to fly south once again! The good news for this week is that temperatures should be more in line for this time of the year, with highs generally in the 70s. Get out there and enjoy the return of some summery weather! Have a great rest of the week.
DID YOU KNOW: Supercells are the most dangerous types of thunder storms. Its wind speeds can top 300 miles per hour!
WEATHER: In 1926 a downpour at Mahoning where 3.05 inches fell in 45 minutes.
