June 2014 was a typical late Spring-early Summer month with normal temperatures and slightly above normal rainfall, which was mostly concentrated in only 3 days in the middle of the month.
The average high temperature was 75.9 and the average low was 53.8 degrees, giving us an average temperature of 64.9 degrees which is exactly average. The highest temperature, 87 degrees, was recorded on the 3rd and the lowest temperature, 44 degrees, was recorded on the 21st. There were no days that were 90 degrees or higher, compared to an average of 2.
There were 70 degree days to end the heating season. This brings our seasonal total to 7928 which includes a correction of a just-realized error made in computing monthly heating degree days. This total is 63 degree days above normal.
Precipitation for the month was 5.02 inches, 0.69 inches above normal. There was measurable precipitation on only 9 days, with 2.53 inches falling on the 12th and 13th. During a 4-day span, from the 11th through the 14th, 3.23 inches fell, which is 64 per cent of the monthly total. Gardeners would have preferred a more even distribution of moisture.
The river reached its highest level, 6.60 feet, on the 14th and its lowest level, 2.97 feet, on the 11th.
