Welcome to summer!

Although for some areas of the country, like upstate New York, this weekend looked like the dead of winter. Take for example the 34 inches of snow that fell on the state's Whiteface Mountain:

The Atlantic Wire took note and learned that, according to Weather Underground, you have to return to 1816 to relate to how unusual the snowfall this weekend was in some parts:

Most famous of all cold and snowy late season events would have to be the infamous 1816 ‘Year without Summer’ and the snowfall in June that occurred in the eastern U.S. and Canada. Between June 6th and June 8th accumulating snow was observed as far south as the Catskills in New York (where one inch was reported) and highlands of central and northwest Pennsylvania. Snowflakes were seen at sea level as far south as ten miles north of tidewater on the Hudson River just above New York City.
