Don't stow the sweatshirts and slacks away and break out the beachwear just yet: The first half of June isn't shaping up to be too warm and summery for Buffalo.
There will be some sunshine, but temperatures are forecast to remain below normal into the second week of the month, according to forecasters' projections.
The mercury will stay in the middle to upper 60s, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
The comfortable, but below normal temperatures, will result from a persistent trough affecting the Northeast, forecasters said.
Average daytime highs should be in the low 70s for the start of June and into the mid-70s by the second week.
Looking ahead, the Climate Prediction Center at the National Weather Service expects the second week of June to also remain below normal temperature-wise.
That would also seem to mirror the first half of last month.
Fourteen of the first 15 days in May ran at or below normal.
The month finished about a degree cooler than the average May, according to weather service data.
