Summer solstice and weather that lies ahead

Yesterday was the longest day of the year - the Summer Solstice - meaning summer officially kicked off 21 minutes before noon Chicago time. And what a perfect day as far as the weather was concerned - warm, sunny, humid with an occasional breeze. May was one of the wettest in a long time and so far in June we've gotten a good amount of rain and fluctuating temperatures. So now that we are officially in the summer season, what can we expect over the next couple of months? Here to help us determine that is WGN-TV Chief meteorologist Tom Skilling.
