WASHINGTON – As if it hasn’t felt like it for the past few weeks, summer has officially started.

Sunday marks the start of the season and the summer solstice — the longest day of the year for those in the Northern Hemisphere.

The summer solstice is at 12:38 p.m. today and the D.C.-Baltimore region will enjoy nearly 15 hours of daylight.

Saturday night’s storms didn’t do much to cool down the region as we’ll have highs in the mid 90s with partly cloudy skies and plenty of humidity.

Heavy rain and winds, thunderstorms and even the threats of tornados swept through the area Saturday night, causing flooding in some spots.
