A warm year has gotten a cool break so far this month, with the first six days of June bringing unseasonably low temperatures – but no new records.

According to the National Weather Service, the average daily temperature so far this month was 70.9, or 5.4 degrees below normal values recorded at Augusta Regional Airport.

The month’s coolest and warmest temperatures both occurred Sunday, when a morning low of 52 climbed 36 degrees to a high of 88.

Record low temperatures for early June are typically in the upper 40s, with record highs above 100 degrees.

Warmer temperatures are forecast for the coming week, with morning lows in the upper 60s to around 70.

No "kidding," Sherlock :).

Rob, I realize they expect you to write about water levels and the weather half the time, but...No "kidding," Sherlock :). Just kidding you, Rob. Yep, the same old hot summer we've had in these parts since the molten lava that was earth turned solid. None of y'all get into the ice age and all that. I can feel you thinking.

Lefties will call it "climate change."

Right thinkers will call it "season change."

The Weather Channel weekly forecast tells me that temperatures will still be in the 80s for at least another week. In fact, Sunday and Monday they're forecasting temperatures in the low 70s. Anytime temperatures are not in the 90s at this time of year, it's "below average" as far as I'm concerned.

Works for me. I hope it stays like this until October.
