June 2010 Sizzles into the Top 10 Warmest Junes

 
June 2010 will go down as one of the warmest June's on record for Wichita, Russell, Salina, and Chanute. Interesting to note, maximum temperature records where only broken once, however warmest low records were broken several times. In fact, many areas experienced lows in the mid to upper 70s, with high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s. This often resulted in calendar day averages in the mid 80s, which is 7 or 8 degrees above normal. It was not until the last few days of June where temperatures started to return back to normal. It will be interesting to see if this warm pattern will continue into July.
