THE INCREASED WARMTH AND HUMIDITY IN THE MONTH OF JUNE BROUGHT A

CROSS WESTERN NEW YORK. A COLD FRONT CROSSED LATER THAT DAY BRINGING
A BRIEF PERIOD OF COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES WITH FULL SUNSHINE
TO START THE FIRST WEEKEND OF THE MONTH. STORMINESS RETURNED AGAIN
TO THE REGION ON THE 12TH AND 13TH WITH A FEW HEAVY STORMS WASHING
OUT A ROAD ACROSS WYOMING COUNTY. AGAIN A COLD FRONT CROSSED THE
REGION LATER ON FRIDAY THE 13TH TO ALLOW FOR ANOTHER DRY AND
COMFORTABLE WEEKEND. IT WAS A LITTLE COOL ON SATURDAY THE 14TH WITH
A SECOND DAY THIS MONTH ONLY REACHING THE 60S BUT BY SUNDAY MORE
COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURES RETURNED. ON THE 17TH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS
BROUGHT WIDESPREAD DAMAGE ESPECIALLY TO AREAS ALONG THE SOUTHERN
LAKE ONTARIO SHORELINE. A THIRD NICE WEEKEND FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
OCCURRED ON THE 21ST AND 22ND AND FEATURED COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURES
AND A FULL DAY OF SUNSHINE ON SUNDAY. ON TUESDAY THE 24TH AGAIN
THUNDERSTORMS RETURNED TO WESTERN NEW YORK. THE MONTH FINISHED VERY
WARM WITH THE LAST DAY REACHING 90F WHICH WAS THE SECOND 90 DEGREE
READING OF THE MONTH.

SUNSHINE AVERAGED 67 PERCENT WHICH IS 3 PERCENTAGE POINTS ABOVE

OCCURRING ON WEEKENDS. WINDS AVERAGED WELL BELOW NORMAL THIS
MONTH...FINISHING TWO AND A HALF MPH BELOW NORMAL. THE STRONGEST WIND
GUST THIS MONTH WAS 46 MPH WHICH OCCURRED WITH A THUNDERSTORM.

IN ALL PLEASANT WEEKENDS THIS MONTH MADE UP FOR MID WEEK STORMINESS
TO MAKE JUNE A NICE SUMMER MONTH.
