Yes, that's right June has come and gone! And there is no denying that it was a hot month...in fact, I'm sweating just thinking about it! Here's a look back at some of the numbers...
- 24 days with highs in the 90's
- Only 5 days with highs in the 80's
You are thinking that's not 30 days...but don't forget we hit the century mark for the first time this year on June 15th. We set a new record high for that day beating the old record of 99 set back in 1963. Fortunately the mercury didn't climb up to 100 any other day during the month; however, it did feel like it was in the triple digits most days...gotta love the humidity!
We've had some scorching days...
As far as rain goes, we have gotten 5.73 inches this month. The normal monthly rainfall amount is 3.54 inches, which means we did pretty well with a surplus of 2.19 inches. For the year, we are just over a half inch below normal.
So, what does July hold? Well I'm not a psychic, I'm just a meteorologist, but here is what the long term models are hinting at as we roll through the next 30 days. Temperatures are expected to be above normal...like lower 90's plus the humidity isn’t hot enough? It is fair game as to whether we'll have below normal precipitation or above normal precipitation. And as we head through hurricane season, we'll continue to monitor the tropics for any systems that may head toward the Georgia coast.
