The First "Real" Summer Weekend? 

It's kinda late for the first "real" summer weekend, but Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources thinks this will be it, according to the press release I just received. Apparently, Jason Gibbs, commissioner of the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, really wants us all to go outside this weekend.

I'm pasting the (tongue-in-cheek?) press release below. And though it's probably going to be nice out, it is supposed to rain a bit on Sunday afternoon. Sorry.

**Official Recreation Weather Alert**
 
For Immediate Release:
Thursday, July 30, 2009
 
Beautiful Weekend Ahead!
 
Ad Hoc Commission of Meteorologists Issues Consensus Recreation Weather Forecast for Weekend
 
Waterbury, Vt. – Some of Vermont’s top meteorological minds have reached an important agreement:  This weekend’s weather is going to be great for outdoor recreation. 
 
Assembled by the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation the provisional Blue Ribbon Consensus Recreation Weather Forecast Commission is composed of meteorologists Roger Hill from Weathering Heights and Radio Vermont; Gary Sadowski from WCAX/ Ch.3; Jim Moore from WPTZ/Ch. 5; Nick Johnson from WFFF/Fox44; and Andy Nash, Meteorologist-in-Charge at the NOAA/National Weather Service station in Burlington, Vermont.   Their charge was to agree on a Consensus Recreation Weather Forecast for this weekend (August 1-2, 2009).
 
Accordingto the commission, the weekend is expected to begin with a spectacular,sunny Saturday with temperatures easily topping the 80 degree mark. Sunday will also be warm and sunny through the afternoon, with cloudsand the possibility of showers moving in from the west later in theafternoon and evening– just as beach goers are rolling up their towelsand campers are heading home after the first “real” weekend of summer.
