An unusually warm June so far

Meteorological summer began on June 1 with back-to-back 90 degree days in the Twin Cities – something that retired U of M meteorologist and climatologist Mark Seeley says has only happened three times in nearly 150 years of daily recordkeeping. (The other two times were 1923 and 1934.)

Seeley talked with MPR News guest host Phil Picardi about June’s higher-than-average temperatures, and the outlook for the weekend ahead.
