PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MELBOURNE FL
745 PM EDT WED JUL 1 2015

...JUNE 2015 WAS WARMER THAN NORMAL WITH NEAR TO BELOW NORMAL
RAINFALL ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA...

JUNE STARTED OFF WITH NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND STORMS MOST AFTERNOONS. A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE BUILT IN
ACROSS THE REGION MID MONTH AND LINGERED WITH A HOTTER AND DRIER
WEATHER PATTERN PERSISTING OVER CENTRAL FLORIDA. OVERALL THESE
CONDITIONS DOMINATED AND LED TO WARMER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND
GENERALLY NEAR TO BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL FOR JUNE.

.TEMPERATURES...

A WEAK RIDGE ACROSS THE AREA EARLY IN JUNE ALLOWED THE EAST COAST
SEA BREEZE TO MOVE INLAND IN A TIMELY MANNER TO MAINTAIN NEAR NORMAL
TEMPERATURES OF MID TO UPPER 80S ALONG THE COAST TO UPPER 80S AND
LOW 90S OVER THE INTERIOR. TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH THE
ATLANTIC HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE AT THE SURFACE BUILT BACK ACROSS THE
REGION AS A MORE DOMINANT RIDGE SETTLED IN ALOFT. THIS STRONGER AND
DEEPER HIGH PRESSURE PATTERN KEPT TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMAL FOR AN
EXTENDED PERIOD WITH HIGHS IN THE MID 90S OVER THE INTERIOR AND LOW
TO MID 90S ALONG THE COAST. SEVERAL RECORD HIGHS AND WARM LOWS WERE
BROKEN AT CLIMATE SITES ACROSS THE AREA FROM THE 13TH TO THE 22ND.
MOST NOTABLE WAS THE HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 100 DEGREES AT ORLANDO
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON THE 19TH...WHICH TIED THE RECORD FOR THAT
DAY SET BACK IN 1998 AND WAS ALSO THE FIRST TIME ORLANDO HAD REACHED
100 DEGREES SINCE JULY 3RD OF THAT SAME YEAR.

THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE SHIFTED SOUTH OF THE AREA INTO LATE MONTH
WITH SOUTHWEST FLOW DELAYING OR PREVENTING DEVELOPMENT OF THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE. THIS KEPT TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMAL...ESPECIALLY
ALONG THE COAST. VERO BEACH ACTUALLY BROKE THEIR RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURE THREE DAYS IN A ROW FROM THE 28TH THROUGH THE 30TH WITH
HIGHS IN THE MID 90S.

OVERALL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE DEPARTURES FOR THE MONTH WERE AROUND 1
TO 2 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THIS LED JUNE 2015 TO RANK IN THE TOP TEN
WARMEST FOR ALL PRIMARY CLIMATE SITES.

.RAINFALL...

ONSHORE FLOW ALLOWED THE SEA BREEZE TO MOVE INLAND MOST DAYS EARLY
IN JUNE WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS GENERALLY FORMING EACH
AFTERNOON. HOWEVER GREATEST PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS USUALLY FELL OVER
THE INTERIOR OR TOWARD THE WEST COAST OF FLORIDA. AN EXCEPTION WAS
ON THE 10TH WHEN HIGHER COVERAGE OF AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND STORMS
BROUGHT WIDESPREAD RAINFALL TO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WITH BOTH
MELBOURNE AND VERO BEACH BREAKING THEIR RAINFALL RECORDS FOR THE
DAY. PRECIPITATION DECREASED DURING THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE MONTH
AS A STRONG RIDGE ALOFT SUPPRESSED DEVELOPMENT OF AFTERNOON
CONVECTION. AS THIS RIDGE WEAKENED AND A DEEPER SOUTHWEST FLOW
PERSISTED LATER IN THE MONTH...AN INCREASE IN SHOWERS AND STORMS WAS
OBSERVED OVER THE AREA.

TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS FOR THE MONTH WERE GENERALLY NEAR TO LOWER
THAN NORMAL. SOME OF THE GREATEST PRECIPITATION DEFICITS...UP TO 4
TO 5 INCHES...OCCURRED ALONG THE TREASURE COAST. IN FACT STUART HAD
THEIR DRIEST JUNE ON RECORD ONLY RECEIVING 1.83 INCHES FOR THE MONTH.
