We know of a local restaurant with a brisk outdoor-table business that was all geared up for a big day yesterday.
But those plans were ambushed by a strong sea breeze off the cooler, damp Atlantic, and the official high in Philadelphia was a mere 58, a paltry 4 degrees above normal.
This isn't going to be an ideal day for outdoor dining either, with highs topping about in the mid-60s, about what one would expect around Tax Day on April 15.
Meanwhile, June continues to bust out all over in Chicago. The high there yesterday was 81 -- normal for a June 20 -- and a full 7 degrees above the record, and 35 degrees above normal.
