Here’s how wet and hot June 2015 was

June 2015 was a wet and hot month.  There were 15 days that reached or exceeded 90°.  On June 23, the fourth day of astronomical summer, Richmond International Airport hit 100° for the first time this year.  It was the 8th warmest June on record.


June also had 18 days with measurable rainfall, producing a monthly total of over 6″ of rain, which is more than 2″ above normal.  This total was not high enough to make it one of the top 10 wettest Junes.
