UNDATED (WKZO) -- Summer officially begins this morning with the solstice, making this the day of the year with the longest time between sunrise and sunset.
WMU Climatologist Robert Ruhf says all the signs are pointing to a cooler than average summer, but you might not notice. He says a shift of two to three degrees on average is not that much dramatically different.
Dr. Ruhf says we can thank a frosty lake Michigan, where water temperatures are in the upper 30’s in the middle of the lake.
He says so far we have had a series of near perfect summer weekends, and we will still have a few warm stretches.
After last winter, we deserve a comfortable summer.
