Summer arrived at 6:24 a.m. Friday, bidding adieu to a spring that featured snowfall on its first day and a week of warm weather at the end.
In between, a lot of cool, cloudy weather got gardeners and local farmers off to a late start.
Most crops in the Sequim and eastern Jefferson County areas are about two to three weeks behind their normal harvest dates.
“We’re waking up into summer,” National Weather Service forecaster Amy Haase said.
But it hasn’t been all that wet so far, with rainfall in Jefferson and Clallam counties at least an inch below normal, according to the National Weather Service.
Looking ahead, the seven- to 14-day forecast is for above-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation, Haase said. That forecast runs through July 4.
