Monday is officially the first day of summer and the longest day of the year.
Summer soltice means the sun’s rays will fall directly on the Tropic of Cancer. The longest day of the year means that the Concho Valley will have 14 hours and 17 minutes of daylight Monday.
With the extended time come hot temperatures that are expected to be the norm for the near future. Highs of mid- to upper 90s are in the forecast with lows in the lower- to mid-70s.
