...WARM JUNE WITH NEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR JUNEAU...

The average June temperature continues the trend of above average
temperatures for Juneau. At around 1.9 degrees above average it was not
as warm as previous months but this still makes June the 9th month in a
row with above normal temperatures. 6 days with temperatures at or
above 70 degrees contributed to the warmth. The warmest period occurred
on the 15th and 16th, with the high on the 16th reaching 80 degrees.
The coolest weather came during the first six days of the month when
temperatures never got above 60 degrees. However the lowest temperature
recorded did not occur until the 14th when the mercury dropped to 38
degrees.

Rainfall during June was slightly above normal only totaling around
0.24 inches above average. The wettest periods were at the beginning
and end of the month. In fact the first 6 days accounted for nearly
half of the total rainfall. This period also had the day with the
highest daily rainfall with 0.84 inches recorded on the 3rd. The rest
of the month only had 5 days with daily rainfall over 0.10 inches. This
includes the day with the second highest daily rainfall for the month
of 0.66 inches on the last day of June. The driest stretch was mid
month with a trace or less of rain observed over 6 days from the 14th
through the 19th. A rare thunderstorm also made an appearance on the
evening of June 29th with thunder and lightning observed across most of
Juneau.

Winds for the month averaged around 7.1 mph. The highest winds occurred
on June 3rd with a rather strong low that tracked north along the outer
coast. The highest wind gust recorded was around 43 mph out of the SE.
