Happy Father’s Day! This morning will end up being the best part of the day as clouds increase and sunshine fades. A frontal system is going to pass through the area late today and with it comes the chance for showers. Dry conditions overall will continue through the morning with the chance of showers increasing after 4 PM. Temperatures will peak early this afternoon before falling back as the clouds thicken.
I'll be updating the details of the showers on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to comment or ask questions too.
Any showers we see will end overnight. This morning was quite chilly with Berlin, NH falling to 37F. Many other communities recorded readings in the 40s. Tomorrow morning won’t be as chilly. By morning temperatures will be in the 50s under partly cloudy skies. Monday dawns partly to mostly and continues that way all day. There is a renewed chance of showers in the afternoon and evening, but like today, many of us will stay dry.
Gardening this week With all the rain this month your soil might be water logged. Raised beds are a great way to grow flowers, vegetables, even trees and shrubs when you have limited space or need to create a new growing area. In the following video watch how we create a raised bed for a suburban homeowner. You could do the same thing anywhere by just changing the scale to fit your needs.
