Here are the belated statistics for June (sorry for the delay):

Total for month: 13.42"/341mm

(1) This was the wettest June since record-keeping began in 2004 (previous record was 5.52"/140mm in 2009, avg June rainfall 2004-2011 is 2.47"/63mm.)
(2) The 89.2F/31.8C was the highest Avg Daily Max Temp for June since 2004. June 2004 was 0.8F higher at 90F, but included only 5 days of data since it was the beginning of Deanna & Darwin's record-keeping. Keep in mind that the temperature readings took a step up when the measuring location moved from Deanna & Darwin's apartments up in the breezes above the church, down to my un-breezy and warmer backyard in the flats near the Jardin. Could be a 2-4 degree F difference on hot days(??) Oh well, that's why it so hard to keep super-consistent temperature records over time. That's one of the many things that proponents and opponents of global warming argue about.

However you slice it, it was definitely a warm June, with an unusual week of rain from a storm system that never even got a name.
