June 2014 Summary

A warm and dry June

For the first time since October of last year it was a warmer than average month.  It never got extremely hot (only one day above 30°C) but there were enough warm days to make the overall temperature 1.7 degrees higher than average.

Although we had the average of 12 days with some precipitation and that precipitation was very hard at times, there was only day with more than 10 mm.  The total of 52.3 mm was well below the average of 80.0 mm for June.

As only 2 of the first 6 months of 2014 had above average precipitation, it is no surprise that the total for the year so far of 332.1 mm is below the average of 416.1 mm.

Summary for June 2014:
Maximum Temperature 30.1°C
Minimum Temperature 7.1°C
Average Daily High Temperature 25.2°C (Long term average 23.6°C)
Average Daily Low Temperature 13.0°C (Long term average 11.3°C)
Total Precipitation 52.3 mm (Long term average 80.0 mm)

(Long term averages based on 1971-2000 data for the Waterloo Wellington Airport)
