LYME REGIS, ENGLAND - MAY 25: People sit beside the sea as they enjoy the fine weather on the beach in Lyme Regis on May 25, 2017 in Dorset, England. Parts of the UK are currently enjoying a blast of warm continental air and sunshine which forecasters claim could deliver the hottest May temperatures since the Second World War. With temperatures possibly hitting 30C (86F) on Saturday, it will make it not only the hottest day of the year so far but could even go higher to beat the record-breaking 32.8C (91F) recorded on May 29, 1944..

If you have to put a date on the official start of summer, this year it’s June 20th.  As I’m looking at a local weather app and looking at the 7-10 day outlook, I’m seeing temps in the mid 80s are approaching.  In my opinion, summer has begun when temperatures stay consistent at mid 80s and upper 80s.  That’s warm enough to jump in the lake or pool, and perfect for laying out at the beach and listening to our app.


According to a survey from Study Finds, a lot of people think it’s officially summer when it’s over 75 degrees outside.  I feel like for us, 75 degrees is that perfect fall or spring temperature.   By now we’ve already started grilling outside with friends and have completed yard projects we started back in March.  We have to take advantage of those cooler temps because temperatures rise pretty quick as we get into June.  When I see 80s, I say summer’s here.  I’d rather consider June 20th  to be the date when I go through two shirts just to get through 3 hours of yard work.
