After the summer we had last year, a lot of us didn't have the highest hopes for this one. We just hoped it would be a little better... And it looks like it's going to be.

Besides the high heat and storms on Monday, this last week of spring into the first week of summer is going to be almost perfect. Well, perfect weather for the kickoff of summer, that is. According to the National Weather Service out of Binghamton, we're looking at sunny skies for the rest of the week, with high temperatures in the upper 70s, up to the low 80s as we head into the weekend. Sounds pretty good, right?!

...That's what we think. Especially after summer 2017 in Central New York. It wasn't an awful summer, but it definitely didn't feel like summer. At least, not for the majority of it. Last summer was cooler and wet. Besides having a great start into the season, the Old Farmer's Almanac is calling for a hotter, drier than average summer for Central New Yorkers this year. That means we should be in for quite a difference compared to last year.

As for your forecast to start summer 2018, here it is, according to the National Weather Service Forecast:

Tuesday
Mostly sunny, with a high near 76.
Tuesday Night
Mostly clear, with a low around 51.
Wednesday
Mostly sunny, with a high near 79.
Wednesday Night
Partly cloudy, with a low around 56.
Thursday
Sunny, with a high near 78.
Thursday Night
Mostly clear, with a low around 53.
Friday
Sunny, with a high near 83.

Summer officially starts this Thursday (June 21st). Let's hope this beautiful weather will continue for the next few months and we can enjoy the summer we missed out on last year.
