Print Email

In a month where the rain normally falls in the beginning, with the warm temperatures coming at the end of the month, this June proved to be the opposite. No precipitation and an average high temperature of 96°F plagued the area from the 2nd-15th. On the 16th-22nd, precipitation was recorded everyday as a tropical system brought rainfall to the area, including flooding rains in Houston. The average high temperature during this period dropped to 89°F. Temperatures remained slightly below average for the remainder of the month, and only a trace of precipitation was record from the 23rd through the end of the month. Overall, the mean monthly temperature was 81.8°F, which is only 0.2°F above average. The average high was 92.7°F, 1.0°F above normal, while the average low was 70.8°F, which is 0.7°F below normal. Despite the numerous days of precipitation, the monthly total of 3.36" was 0.43" below normal, which puts the yearly total 0.99" below normal at 19.59".
