The first day of June marks the beginning of meteorological summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

In New Brunswick, we are hoping for much better weather than the last three calendar months which have been cold and relatively wet.

Forecasters say part of the blame may come from colder waters including the Great Lakes which still have almostĀ two percent ice cover on Lake Superior.

This is the latest date in recent memory – since 2003 – for ice on the lake which is mainly hugging the southern coast bordering the states of Michigan and Wisconsin.
