The First Day of Summer?
Let's start with a disclaimer: the following meteorological information is from memory only...no Google tonight.
June 21st is the Summer Solstice...also considered the first day of summer. The reason it gets that distinction is because the 21st is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. However, as you may have noticed, June 21st falls in the month of June. In San Diego that means early morning marine layer..."June Gloom" to you and me.
That was certainly the case today, but the water was warm, the waves were fun and the sun did eventually come out. It's just that it didn't really look like summer this morning. I mean I didn't see a single bikini today.
