Hazy Shade of Summer
We often have haze during the summer but not smoky haze from wildfires in Canada, which is what we had yesterday and will continue to have for the next several days. Scattered showers and thundershowers should continue this afternoon and last into the early evening. The haze and clouds will keep temperatures a little cooler today. We have dry weather with comfortable temperatures Thursday through Saturday but the hazy skies will remain. Showers and thundershowers should develop late Sunday afternoon and continue overnight into Monday morning. Tuesday looks dry.

123 photographers submitted over 700 photos in the contest. Then almost 30,000 votes were cast in voting for the best photo. The overall quality of photos was amazing--we could have produced 5 beautiful calendars from these submissions! Click here to see all the winning photos.
Additional photos will be selected as "Best of the Rest" photos during the next couple weeks as we do the design work on for next year's calendar.
Congratulations and thanks to all the winners!

Wildfires across the Canada have already burned more than 3.3 million hectares of land - an area 12 times the 10-year average for this time of year. Smoke from fires in eastern Canada will continue to provide a hazy look to the skies for the next several days. Occasional rain will reduce the haze some.
A cold front will move through from the north today and it will generate showers and thundershowers this afternoon. The coverage of rain will increase this evening before ending overnight. Drier air works in Thursday and Friday and temperatures will be pleasant. The hazy skies will continue though.
Temperatures warm Saturday under hazy skies and we remain dry. A cold front moving in from the west will bring showers and thundershowers late Sunday afternoon and evening, lasting into Monday morning. The cold front should move through Monday afternoon clearing out the rain. Tuesday looks nice under high pressure.
