JUNE 2019 FINISHED WARMER AND DRIER THAN NORMAL OVER MOST OF
NORTHEAST WASHINGTON INTO THE NORTH IDAHO PANHANDLE. WHILE MOST OF
THE MONTH WAS FREE OF WILDFIRE SMOKE THERE WAS ONE EXCEPTION. ON THE
4TH THE 243 COMMAND FIRE SOUTH OF VANTAGE SENT A LARGE SMOKE PLUME
EAST ACROSS THE COLUMBIA BASIN INTO THE SPOKANE AREA. THE REMAINDER
OF THE MONTH SAW SEVERAL AROUNDS OF ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WHICH
PRODUCED LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. THE MAJORITY OF THESE STORMS FORMED
OVER THE MOUNTAINS BUT A FEW IMPACTED THE LOWER ELEVATIONS AS WELL.
ON THE 19TH A THUNDERSTORM TRACKED THROUGH SPOKANE PRODUCING ABOUT
30-45 MINUTES OF HEAVY RAIN AND SMALL HAIL. ON THE 26TH A STRONG
THUNDERSTORM BLEW OVER A SMALL TREE AND DISLODGED A BOAT NEAR THE
COEUR D`ALENE RESORT. ANOTHER SMALL TREE WAS BLOWN DOWN IN RATHDRUM.

ONE RECORD WAS TIED DURING THE MONTH AT THE SPOKANE AIRPORT WHEN THE
HIGH TEMPERATURE REACHED 91 DEGREES ON THE 13TH.
