Weather Remains a Perfect Mix of Late Spring Temperatures:
Refreshingly normal: No out-of-sorts weather as summer season approaches

Consider it the June ideal.
As the season turns to early summer, the GLOW region’s weather seems ... well, refreshingly normal. No major droughts, heat waves, torrential rains or out-of-season freezes are expected.
In fact, the only proverbial “blip” in the region’s weather comes from the U.S. Drought Monitor. The northeastern portion of Orleans County — amounting to 23.58 percent of its geographic area — was rated as “abnormally dry” as of the latest May 31 update.
But that’s about it for weather issues.
“Abnormally dry” is the lowest of five drought-related conditions described by the Drought Monitor.
The remainder of Orleans County, along with Genesee, Wyoming and Livingston counties, rated as normal.
The national Weather Service in Buffalo is calling for similarly quiet weather for the rest of the week in the GLOW region. Temperatures will range from the mid-60s to lower-70s, with rain on Thursday and a 50 percent chance of showers on Saturday.
