AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) - Summer officially starts Friday but if you were up early Thursday morning it felt more like fall.
We started June in the 90s but for most of this month we've had to deal with cooler and wetter than normal weather.
It was a chilly start early Thursday morning. Temperatures made it down into the lower 40s. In fact it got down to 44 degrees at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee breaking the old record of 45.
For most of this month temperatures have been running below normal especially at night. And with the recent cool weather many of us have been turning off our air conditioners.
"My air conditioners which are two units at each end of the house have only been turned on to activate them not to initiate cooling at probably around 78 degrees is what I set," said Larry Andrews of Agawam.
The cooler weather is affecting air conditioner sales at least right now.
"It's tailed off a bit but you still have the people that are pretty active coming in and buying air conditioners and fans to get ready for the next big push but when that first big blast of hot air comes again they'll be coming in, in hoards getting their air conditioners," said Bruce Drewniany, the manager of Rocky's Ace Hardware in Agawam.
But some say even if it does warm up they're not going to get an air conditioner.
"I don't deal with air conditioning I don't like it. I'd rather take it easy not move fast just relax. Air conditioning is too cold," said Ann from Agawam.
If you do have an air conditioner chances are you'll be turning it on this weekend.
