We went from a very dry may, one of the driest on record to June where I swear that it rained every day. Some summers are wetter than others and 2021 is off to a very wet start.
All summer the weather is much the same. Mid to high 70’s first thing in the morning. Heating up to the high 80’s or low 90’s with extreme humidity all day 24/7.
It’s hurricane season. Hurricane Elsa just hit north of Cedar key as a tropical storm, winds less than 75 mph and we got rain and light winds here in Ocala. The hurricane season ends in October and the chance for hurricanes increases as the ocean water gets warmer over the summer.
I like to say that the hot humid summers are a small price to pay for no winter and no snow or ice.
