JUNE SAW A GRADUAL TRANSITION FROM THE COOL AND FREQUENTLY WET
PATTERN THAT HAD DOMINATED MUCH OF THE SPRING TO WARMER AND MORE
HUMID SUMMER-LIKE CONDITIONS. AN ACTIVE JET STREAM KEPT STORM
SYSTEMS TRACKING NEAR THE REGION BRINGING RAIN EVERY FEW DAYS.
CLOUDS AND RAIN OFTEN KEPT THE TEMPERATURE COOL, BUT EVENTUALLY THE
PATTERN SHIFTED AND WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR MOVED INTO THE AREA.
THE FIRST 90 DEGREE DAY CAME ON JUNE 28 WITH MANY MORE COMING IN THE
NEXT FEW WEEKS. THE TEMPERATURE AGAIN TOPPED 90 DEGREES FOR 4
STRAIGHT DAYS FROM JULY 3 TO 6. ALTHOUGH A COLD FRONT BROUGHT
TEMPERATURES DOWN A FEW DEGREES, THE HEAT RETURNED IN MID JULY. THE
TEMPERATURE TOPPED 90 AGAIN FOR 3 STRAIGHT DAYS FROM JULY 19 TO 21,
PEAKING AT 97 ON JULY 20. THE HUMIDITY ACCOMPANYING THIS HEAT WAS
EXTREME, AND THE TEMPERATURE DID NOT EVEN FALL BELOW 80 DEGREES THAT
NIGHT. ALTHOUGH A COLD FRONT BROUGHT A BRIEF BREAK FROM THE HEAT,
THE HOT WEATHER RETURNED WITH ONE MORE STRETCH OF 3 STRAIGHT DAYS
ABOVE 90 DEGREES FROM JULY 28 TO 30. THE HEAT GRADUALLY DIMINISHED
THROUGH THE MONTH OF AUGUST AS SEVERAL ROUNDS OF COOL, DRY CANADIAN
AIR MOVED IN. JUST AS THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY WOULD BEGIN TO BUILD, A
COLD FRONT WOULD BRING THUNDERSTORMS AND A FRESH COOL, DRY AIR MASS.
DESPITE SEVERAL DAYS OF THUNDERSTORMS, MOST OF THE HEAVIER RAINFALL
MISSED MANCHESTER AND THE SUMMER FINISHED MUCH DRIER THAN NORMAL.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE SUMMER WAS 72.6 DEGREES WHICH WAS
2.4 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE WARMEST SUMMER RECORDED WAS JUST LAST
YEAR WHEN THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 73.6 DEGREES. THE COOLEST WAS
64.9 DEGREES IN 1946.

A TOTAL OF 7.68 INCHES OF RAIN FELL WHICH WAS 3.54 INCHES BELOW
NORMAL. THE WETTEST SUMMER WAS IN 1938 WHEN 20.32 INCHES FELL. THE
DRIEST WAS IN 2016 WHEN ONLY 5.21 INCHES WAS RECORDED.

HISTORICAL RECORDS AT MANCHESTER BEGAN IN 1885, BUT WITHIN THIS
RECORD THERE REMAIN NUMEROUS YEARS OF UNAVAILABLE DATA. DUE TO THIS,
HISTORICAL RECORDS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED INCOMPLETE AS SOME
SIGNIFICANT EXTREMES MAY BE MISSING FROM THE DATA. MORE CONSISTENT
MODERN RECORDS BEGAN IN 1998 AND CONTINUE TO THE PRESENT.
