June with 6 days above 90° goes down as the 11th warmest on record
We are now halfway through the year! July is here and June came to an end. Overall June was a fairly warm month. The beginning of the month was fairly wet but it was hard to come by decent rain in the last two weeks of the month. By the end of the month June had an average temperature of 69.9*. That average temperature goes down as the 11th warmest June on record.
June saw six days at or above 90* including our first 100* day since 2012 that happened June 21. The coldest temperature was June 9 when the low in Milwaukee dropped to 49*.
When it came to rainfall we had a lot in the first two weeks of the month then not much. The first 15 days of the month saw over 3" of rainfall - a really good start! But during the last two weeks we could barely buy a drop with less than a tenth of an inch falling.
In total we ended June with 3.16" of rainfall which is 1.22" below the average of 4.38". It was more rain than we had last year.
Welcome to July! July is our hottest month of the year on average but it doesn't feature much temperature movement. The average high goes from 81* to 82* and the average low from 63* to 65*. We average just under three and a half inches of new rain during the month.
