June 2013 vs. June 2012

june2013vsjune2012What a difference one year makes!  June 2012 was the 3rd driest on record with monthly rainfall totaling under 1 inch.  It was hot, too.  Rockford had ten days with high temperatures in the 90s. One day last June even hit 100 degrees!

Compare this to June 2013.  This month we picked up 7.72 inches of rain, with rain falling on 20 out of 30 days.  This put June 2013 in the record books as the 10th wettest June in Rockford’s history.  It was cooler than normal, too.  Average high temperatures were just shy of 80 degrees with only one day hitting that 90 degree mark!
