First day of summer is upon us

(WMC-TV) – Summer officially begins Wednesday evening. At 6:09 p.m., the summer solstice will be upon us, making it the longest day of the year.

The temperatures will reflect the season with a high in the lower 90s and mostly clear skies Wednesday night with a low in the lower 70s.

The sunny trend will continue through Thursday so you have a chance to get out and make your first few days of summer count before the rain comes Friday.

Happy summer!
