How did we do?
Snowpack, Drought, River flow, and lake levels…
The average high for June is 78 and the average low is 36. The record high of 101 occurred on 30 June 1934. The record low of 20 occurred on 2 June 1908. Precip averages 0.93″ in June – our driest month. Wolf Creek Pass averages 1.74″ of rain and 1.2″ of snow.
And what do we expect?
Arleen is the expert and this is what she expects…
June is historically our driest month so it won’t take much for us to see above average precipitation. We can expect that we will remain under the current pattern for the first 1/2 of the month with continuing rain showers. Also, temperatures will remain less than average. We haven’t seen 75° at the airfield yet! The second half of the month we will dry out with only a weak system the third week in June.
