It can take longer for summer weather to arrive in Southern California. Right now we're in a steady pattern with daily highs in the high 60s/low 70s, and for me that is perfect. Not "perfect for the time of year," just perfect, full stop.

I'm dreading the eventual arrival of heat, especially because it lasts so long--well after everyone else is enjoying fall, we're still stuck in summer. Maybe I'd like summer better if we had a long, cold winter and the intense heat only lasted two months, but I doubt it. I'd be pretty happy with seasonless 60s and 70s (and a bit more rain).

Summer by the ocean in SoCal is not bad at all. If it's hot during the day, it will generally cool off at night. I can only remember a couple days wanting AC.

May Grey/June Gloom was my least favorite season in SoCal. Especially when you need to work somewhere inland and can experience the difference - sunny and nice there, gloomy and chilly back home. Literally, driving back to my home I'd see a wall of clouds greeting me

The five day forecast for here is 90 to 93 with lows in the sixties and lower seventies. Abundant sunshine. After a cooler than average spring, we are now averaging about 6-8 degrees hotter than average for this time of year. Oh well! Hey, I'm a New Orleans native. Nothing under 95 degrees with 80 percent humidity even fazes me! And even then, you'll find me working out in the flower beds till the heat drives me in around 11 am!

We've had a change of seasons alright - we've changed over from spring to summer, even if it's not official yet.

Unfortunately, I'm not right on the beach. It does cool off nicely at night, but daytime temps during the summer are 10-15 degrees F hotter where I am, than actually at the coast.

I LOVE June Gloom! Especially knowing that it will be followed by July, August, September, and October sun.

I would hate to see what's gonna happen in July or August if it's 100 F in mid-May already

Looks like San Antonio skipped over spring.

Mid 60's here and raining I'm just fine with that

Glad that's at least six hours south of me!

My goodness, the high tomorrow in Denver is 51 degrees though - and rainy. Low in the low 40s. That would feel like winter to me. I'll stick with what I've got going on right here, for now. Probably skip out to Maine or Vermont in September when I'm thoroughly sick of summer though!

Love 51 degrees. We'll be in the upper 70s by Monday though. I don't have to goto Maine in September, usually starts cooling down here in Denver by then.


Looks like heat index of 95 tomorrow at 6pm in Tyler. I'd wait on starting that firepit. And please stay hydrated Kathryn

I'm so glad you love 51 degrees. I do too - in January!

I've really been enjoying working in the yard, especially in the mornings when it's in the 70s like you say it will be by Monday in Denver. My backyard is so shady and lush that it stays pleasant basically all day, even when temps are in the 90s - but as you know, I enjoy the heat for the most part. It's just how I'm wired. I do especially love those cool mornings though - to me, temps in the 70s feel cool, especially in the green shade.


Isn't it great that we both love where we live? Everyone should be so lucky.

It's humid as hell down there too, lots of concrete. It's a reason I left Texas for sure. Too early to be this hot!!
