Sunday: Father's Day and the summer solstice. An expert from MN State Climatologist Mark Seeley:
The summer solstice (longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere) will occur about half past 11am this Sunday, June 21st, as the sun passes directly over the Tropic of Cancer. This year it is coincidental with Father's Day. Minnesota citizens near Lake of the Woods (northernmost Minnesota) will enjoy a day length of about 16 and a quarter hours, while those citizens in Austin (southern Minnesota) will enjoy a day length of about 15 and a half hours.
June is one of our wettest months of the year so it's just fitting that we have a daily chance of thunderstorms in our forecast through next week. Hit-or-miss downpours can be hard to pin point, so trail openings will likely depend on the location of these summertime storms.
Ironically, northern Minnesota woke up to freezing temperatures Friday morning. Didn't feel like the summer season at all!
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
