June was warmer than normal-but no record highs


June ended up warmer than usual and with more precipitation than usual.

The highest reading was 91 degrees and that occurred on four days – the 17th and 18th plus the 29th and 30th.

Blaess says there were six days with highs of 90 or above and that compares to the normal of four days.

The lowest reading was 51 on June 4th.

Precipitation was 6.95 inches.  Blaess says that is more than the normal of 4.6 inches.

For the first half of the year the precipitation is 18.79 inches.  The weather observer says that compares to the normal of 16.91 inches for the first six months of the year.
