It's feeling like summer! June 2014 has started warm and wet when comparing several climate sites around the region. You can view each down independently above on the picture, but when taking the six town combination and putting it together, the area has had a couple degree edge on temperature and a wetter than average first half. There are a few towns that have been drier than average so far including Montpelier and St. J. However there's nothing too substantial in terms of surplus or deficits that I have to report to you, which is always nice.

So what does the future hold? Well the immediate future from Thursday, June 19 to Sunday, June 22 will be cooler than average. Cool, Canadian high pressure will build in and stay put for the four-day period with temperatures about five to ten degrees cooler than average any given day. However on the longer term we're looking at another warm up toward the middle and end of next week and as we get toward the turn of the calendar into July. That's according to the Climate Prediction Center which also suggests a higher likelihood of wetter than average weather. The one and three month outlooks for July, August, and September show equal chances of warmer or cooler than average temps and equal chances for higher/lower than average precipitation.
