Father’s Day Weekend Forecast

19 Jun 2021, 4:59 pm

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Dads out there! This year comes with a special bonus, the Summer Solstice, or the longest day of the year as it is commonly known. No, there are more than 24 hours in the day on Sunday, but the sun is out for the longest time of the year in the northern hemisphere.

With all that daylight, Dads may be wanting to spend some time outdoors. Here’s the latest on the weekend forecast:


All eyes will be on the southeast as Claudette continues to churn through. It will continue to bring heavy rain and the threat for severe weather to the Gulf Coast into Father’s Day.

Temperatures will sit at, or slightly below, average for the weekend. With rain showers & cloud cover, it shouldn’t be too bad out there, but a reminder to check the forecast, especially closer to the coast, for the threat of severe weather.


The northern United States will see a bit of rain shower activity as we head into the weekend, especially for the northeast. Expect the chance for afternoon showers each day. It won’t be a washout for Dads, but check back in with WeatherNation as we continue to bring you the latest.

The western U.S. will once again be hot and dry with a couple locations trying to tie or break records once again this weekend. We are looking at the slight opportunity for rain for the northern Rockies, but most areas across the Pacific Northwest and four-corners region will be dry. Remember, if you’re headed camping with Dad to extinguish all fires. If it is too hot to touch, it is too hot to leave!
