The Sea Island Bank time/temperature sign on East Main Street offers proof of the high temps on the official first day of summer Tuesday.
Tuesday was officially the first day of summer, but around the southeast, summer weather has been around for a while. A slight cooling trend — from triple digits to the low 90s — is in store for the Bulloch County area for the next few days as possible thunderstorms could bring life-giving rain to the parched earth, said Bulloch County Public Safety Director Ted Wynn. “(Tuesday was) the first day of summer,” he said. “Temperature wise, summer has been here for a month” While Tuesday’s high was around 100 degrees — recorded as higher in some places — the temperatures are expected to stay hot, but ease up just a bit later this week, he said.
