Weather data for June

Posted by Bret B on July 1, 2014, 12:05 pm

We had a much rainier than normal June, aided by a Cat 4 hurricane (Christina), an Invest or two, and a tropical storm (Elida.) At this rate we might run out of storm names before we run out of storm season...

It was also quite warm and humid until around the 20th when showers started keeping us cooler. The ocean warmed up much earlier and warmer than normal this spring, which had a direct effect on air temperature and humidity. I was out of town the 1st half of June so I don't have good temperature and humidity data to compare to historical averages. At least my rain gauge has a daily & weekly memory, so I can usually retrieve that data.

Rainfall for the month, June 2014: 10.50" / 267mm.
Rainiest day: 3.56" / 90mm (on June 11th, related to Cat 4 Hurricane Christina.)
Avg June rainfall (2004-2013): 3.70" / 94mm.
Record max June rainfall (2004-2013): 13.42" / 341mm (June 2012)

YTD rainfall: 12.02" / 305mm.
Avg annual rainfall (2004-2013): 37.1" / 942mm.

Hottest afternoon readings since June 15:
June 18th hit 96.4F / 35.8C,
while the relative humidity was 60%,
for a heat index ("feels like") of 117F / 47C.
Hopefully those kinds of heat index days are over!
