Jumping into summer

Dineen Schmidt, 18, gets a lift from her friends Sydney Horne, Becca Walcker and Kelsi Stockert, from left, as they beat the heat Tuesday in the swimming area at Kennydell Park at Black Lake.

The girls are all from Tumwater. July begins with plenty of sunshine. Today’s high is forecast for 84 degrees, with temperatures building each day until a predicted high of 87 on Friday. The Fourth of July will be slightly cooler – 82 – and temperatures drop into the mid-70s for Sunday and Monday.
