June 2008

Print Email

June was uncharacteristically dry throughout the entire month. Apart from the 0.02" that fell on the 6th, College Station received its only rainfall on the last day of the month, when a thundershower passed over the city. This followed precipitation patterns elsewhere in the state, as most of Texas experienced severely dry conditions during much of June. Dryness in College Station was only exacerbated by unusually warm temperatures throughout the month, with the only below average temperature day occurring on the last day of the month. Average daily temperatures, especially during the first half of the month, ran generally 5-7°F above normal. During the latter part of June, temperatures were still above average about 2-4°F, still a significant difference from average for late spring and early summer. Many near records were set this month for both maximum and minimum extremes.
