Preliminary June Climate Summary

Preliminary June Climate Summary: With just a few days left in the month it looks like most observers will report mean monthly temperatures that are plus or minus with 1F of normal.  Extremes for the month ranged from 99F at Madison (Lac Qui Parle County) and other western Minnesota communities on the 9th to just 25F at Embarrass and Brimson on the 1st.  Dew points generally remained in the comfortable range except for 2-3 days when values approached the 70F mark, raising the Heat Index. Rainfall was variable around the state during June.  Some areas of north-central and northeastern Minnesota received below normal rainfall, but many other areas of the state saw above normal rainfall.  Some of the wetter than normal reports from observers included: 5.07" at Twin Valley 5.23" at Bemidji 7.65" at Melrose 5.33" at Windom 7.56" at Albert Lea 6,16" at Owatonna 6.85" at Waseca 5.40" at Springfield 6.94" at Austin 5.22" at Zum
