First Week of June Brings Severe Weather, 90 Degree Temperatures, and Gnats!

Climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois celebrate the arrival of meteorological summer (and explain why it’s not in sync with astronomical summer), look back on the season’s first major severe weather outbreak, discuss southern Minnesota’s farmers’ ongoing struggle with flooded fields, explain how vegetation can boost humidity (evapotranspiration), marvel over the rare sightings of noctilucent clouds, and chat about this week’s weather outlook.
