July outlook

June 30, 2014


  Stating the obvious, June was wet. We totaled 11.36 inches of rain in the Twin Cities. That’s about seven inches more than our typical June! Lake and river levels have risen and creeks are running very high. Our rainfall total was less than a third of an inch shy of the Twin Cities June record of 11.67 inches, set in 1874. The average monthly temperature for June was slightly above normal, ending our streak of cooler than normal months at seven. Our warmest reading was 85 degrees, on June 16th,20th,21st and 29th, and our coldest reading was 49 on the 8th.

  Looking ahead, the July temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a slight tendency for below normal temperatures over much of Minnesota and western Wisconsin:


  The outlook doesn’t mean that every day is expected to be cooler than normal…it is the average temp for the entire month that shows a slight cool tendency. A little bit cool can be okay in July…our average high in the Twin Cities is listed as either 83 or 84 degrees for each day of the month.
