JUNE CONTINUED THE SPRING TREND OF COOL AND FREQUENTLY WET WEATHER.
AN ACTIVE JET STREAM PATTERN BROUGHT FREQUENT STORM SYSTEMS THROUGH
THE REGION, EACH BRINGING CLOUDS AND SOME RAINFALL. THIS KEPT
TEMPERATURES COOL UNTIL LATE JUNE WHEN WARMER SUMMER-LIKE WEATHER
FINALLY ARRIVED. THIS STRETCH OF WARM WEATHER PEAKED IN THE FIRST
PART OF JULY WHEN THE TEMPERATURE TOPPED 90 DEGREES ON JULY 4, 5,
AND 6. A COLD FRONT BROUGHT SOME COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER FOR A FEW
DAYS, BUT THE HOT WEATHER RETURNED IN MID JULY. FOR 3 DAYS FROM JULY
19 THRU 21 THE TEMPERATURE TOPPED 90 DEGREES, PEAKING AT 96 ON THE
20TH. A COLD FRONT THEN BROUGHT SOME HEAVY RAINFALL ON THE 22ND AND
23RD WITH SOME COOLER WEATHER FOR A FEW DAYS. BUT THE HEAT CAME BACK
ONE MORE TIME IN LATE JULY WITH ANOTHER 3 DAYS OF 90 DEGREE HEAT
JULY 28 THRU 30. THE WEATHER PATTERN THEN SHIFTED TOWARD MORE
FREQUENT COLD FRONTS BRINGING COOLER, DRIER AIR OUT OF CANADA.
ALTHOUGH THERE WERE PERIODS OF WARMER WEATHER IN AUGUST, JUST AS THE
HEAT AND HUMIDITY WOULD BEGIN TO BUILD ANOTHER COLD FRONT WOULD
BRING THUNDERSTORMS AND A RETURN TO COOLER, DRIER AIR. ALTHOUGH RAIN
WAS LESS FREQUENT IN LATE SUMMER, IT CAME IN HEAVIER DOSES AS THERE
WERE 4 DAYS IN AUGUST WITH MORE THAN 1 INCH OF RAINFALL.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE SUMMER WAS 68.7 DEGREES WHICH WAS
0.9 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE WARMEST SUMMER ON RECORD WAS IN 1872
WHEN THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 72.3 DEGREES. THE COOLEST WAS 62.6
DEGREES IN 1903.

A TOTAL OF 12.62 INCHES OF RAIN FELL WHICH WAS 2.01 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST RAIN FELL ON JULY 22 AND 23 WHEN 2.26 INCHES
FELL. THE WETTEST SUMMER WAS IN 1897 WHEN 20.49 INCHES FELL. THE
DRIEST WAS 2.74 INCHES IN 1999.
