...Data for North Little Rock for June 2017...

.Summary...
Things were very different this June compared to much of the last
decade. While there were a few days with temperatures above the 30-
year average, this was not the case in most of the month. This was
the coolest June by average high, low and monthly temperatures in 14
years.

Incredibly enough, there was only one 90-degree day at North Little
Rock during June. Since records began in late 1975, this is the
fewest number of 90-degree days ever recorded in the month of June.
This eclipsed the previous record of four, which was back in 2014.

The highest temperature recorded during the month was only 90
degrees, which was a first for the month of June. In the other 40
years of data recorded at North Little Rock, the highest June
temperatures have always been 91 degrees or greater. That was not
the case this year.

Speaking of 90-degree days, the first one for the year was on June
16th. This was the latest first 90-degree day since 1997, and the
2nd latest since records began.

The lowest temperature during the month was 60 degrees, which was
the coolest June reading since 2013.

Rainfall was well above average, and June 2017 was one of the
wettest ever recorded.

.Monthly Temperatures...
The average high temperature was the coolest since 2003, and the 8th
coolest on record. The average low temperature was the coolest since
2003. The average monthly temperature was the coolest since 2003,
and the 10th coolest on record.

.Daily Temperatures...
Daily temperatures were above average on eight days, average on
three days, and below average on 19 days.

.Daily Record Temperatures Tied or Broken During the Month...
None.

.Monthly Rainfall...
It was the wettest June since 2014, and the 7th wettest on record.

.Daily Rainfall Records Tied or Broken...

Date   New Record          Previous Record
 3rd  1.65 in 2017           0.96 in 1981

The rainfall of 1.65 inches on the 3rd marked the wettest June day
since June 8, 2014, and the 7th wettest calendar day rainfall on
record during the month of June.
