Salisbury Weather Stats halfway through the year

The transition from today to tomorrow marks the halfway point of 2023. Despite two consecutive months of below average temperatures (May was 1.3 degrees below normal and June was 2.1 degrees below normal) the year itself is averaging 3.2 degrees above normal. That unusual circumstance can be attributed to the abnormally warm start to 2023 in both January and February. January averaged a whopping 8.3 degrees above normal and February followed at 6.9 degrees above normal.

As we end June today only isolated areas on the Delmarva Peninsula have recorded a single 90 degree temperature reading thus far in 2023. This time last year Salisbury had already reached 90 degrees on eleven different occasions. The earliest occurrence in 2022 was in March. Salisbury also reached 90 degrees three times in May of 2022 and seven times last June. Yet, 2023 is warmer than 2022 through the first six months. What will July birng?

Today should bring another typical early summer day with partly sunny skies and temperatures near 87 degrees. As is typical for this time of year isolated showers and thunderstorms can never be ruled out.

Saturday, the first of July, will see an increase in humidity with a better chance of scattered afternoon storms. Temps again should reach the upper 80’s.

The extended outlook for the first part of July calls for hazy, hot, and humid conditions in the Salisbury area where we are likely to finally experience widespread temperature readings that top 90 degrees. Are you ready for the ride?
