June 2003

Print Email

June was definitely a contrast compared to May, as College Station received more rain in the month of June than it has had in the past few months as a whole. The monthly total of 6.64" was nearly 3 inches above normal for the month. However a rain deficit of 3.15" for the year-to-date total still remains. There were also quite a few close records this month. The beginning of the month was slightly above normal but then was slightly cooled down by a cold front that moved into the area on the 6th. However, by the 9th, temperatures were on the rebound and in the 90s. The highest maximum temperature was on the 11th at 97°F. The 12th of June began a 5-day stretch of much needed precipitation for College Station, where 4.02" of rain fell. The end of the month saw highs in the lower 90s and lows in the lower 70s, slightly below normal.
