The event known as the summer solstice will take place tomorrow morning at exactly 5:14. The summer solstice is the day when the Earth’s axis tilts closer to the sun than any other day of the year, beginning the official start of summer. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will experience the longest daylight of the year tomorrow while those in the Southern Hemisphere will experience the longest night of the year.

The official start of summer will still bring spring-like temperatures to start this week with those summer temps in the 80s expected by week's end. Showers and the threat of showers will arrive tomorrow and last through most of the week.
