...JUNE WAS COOLER AND DRIER THAN NORMAL IN BETHEL...

DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE A SERIES OF LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS WITH THEIR ASSOCIATED
FRONTS MOVED NORTHWARD ALONG THE ALEUTIAN ISLAND AND INTO THE GULF OF ALASKA OR
CENTRAL ALASKA. WITH THE TRACK THAT THESE SYSTEMS TOOK THE SOUTHWESTERN PART OF
ALASKA WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THESE SYSTEMS BACKSIDE. THIS PROVIDED A
PREDOMINANT NORTHERLY FLOW OVER THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA DURING THE MONTH. THIS
PRODUCED COOLER AND DRIER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS FOR THE BETHEL AREA.

TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION WERE BELOW NORMAL FOR JUNE.
