June was warm and fairly seasonable in New York City this year. We had a few hot and humid days where the mercury made it into the upper 80s, but not a single day made it to 90°F. That marks only the second time in ten years that the city did not see a 90°F day in June. Nonetheless, the city’s average temperature for the month was 72.5°F. That is 1.5°F above normal.
Despite getting off to a soggy start, the Big Apple came up a bit short this June in terms of precipitation. Most of the 4.26 inches of rain measured in Central Park came down in three significant events early in the month. In the end, though, we were 0.15 inches below normal.
