Summer 2021 is expected to start, officially on Sunday, June 20, 2021, at 9:32 am PST, yes on Father’s Day.

However, the summer heat will build and arrive later than normal. The Farmers’ Almanac is suggesting that this year, high temperatures will peak in late August into early September. The air will be much drier, as a result it makes for a bad combination for wildfires.

These conditions also can create a higher chance of thunderstorms.
