You're not alone; KIRO hosts lament Seattle summer weatheron June 26, 2012 @ 12:15 pm (Updated: 8:10 am - 6/27/12 )
The drizzle has't let up and we're getting impatient for summer to appear.
"I'm seriously really down today. It's this weather. It's pouring right now," said 97.3 KIRO FM host Dori Monson on Tuesday, calling himself an idiot for living in Seattle for the last 50 years of his life.
"What kind of a moron would spend their summers in driving rain?" said Monson.
With all the rain and darkness outside, host Dave Ross got confused at his first hourly time check.
"God, it's dark out there," said Ross. "Is there a solar eclipse today or something?"
Co-host Luke Burbank said somebody had better call Will Smith, because only some alien craft blocking the sun could explain such dark days in June.
Even KING 5 meteorologist Rich Marriott addressed the weather disappointment in his morning forecast.
"We've got people that are pining away for summer, but it's not really showing up yet," said Marriott on Seattle's Morning News.
"At least it's warm rain for now," he said as a less than thrilling consolation.
After discovering it was summer everywhere else across the U.S., with temperatures reading 86 in Miami, 85 in Charlotte, 100 in Denver, Monson sounded ready to move.
"58 and rain in Seattle, Washington. What are we doing? What are we thinking?" said Monson. "I've had it. I can't take it anymore."
Wednesday might bring the first break in the gray with a forecast of mostly sunny, but then the National Weather Service says it's back to rain Thursday through Monday.
