JUNE WAS AN ABNORMAL MONTH FOR YAKUTAT AS WE SAW A SERIES OF FRONTS COME THROUGH
THE EARLY PART OF THE MONTH FOLLOWED BY RECORD BREAKING HEAT DURING THE MIDDLE
WEEKS.
HEAVY PRECIPITATION AND STRONG WINDS BROUGHT ON BY A GALE FORCE LOW ON THE FOURTH
SET A NEW DAILY RAINFALL RECORD AT 2.1 INCHES. A SERIES OF TROUGHS CONTINUED TO
AVERAGE HALF AN INCH OF DAILY RAIN THE WEEK FOLLOWING.

HIGH PRESSURE AND CLEAR SKIES TRAILED BEHIND TO BRING US A RECORD HEAT WAVE. RECORD
DAILY HIGH TEMPS AND HIGH MINIMUM TEMPS WERE BROKEN ON THE 14TH, 15TH, 21ST, 24TH,
AND 25TH OF THE MONTH WITH LOW STRATUS, LIGHT RAIN, AND FOG BRINGING THE ONLY
RELIEF ON THE INTERVENING DAYS.

THE END OF THE MONTH SAW A RETURN TO CLOUDY WEATHER WITH MILD TEMPS AND LIGHT
RAINFALL TO FOLLOW OUR AVERAGES.
