...JUNE 2014 NARRATIVE FOR CENTRAL NEBRASKA REGIONAL AIRPORT...

BY FAR AND AWAY...THE BIGGEST STORY OF THE MONTH WAS ABUNDANT
RAINFALL...AS GRAND ISLAND NOTCHED ITS 3RD-WETTEST JUNE ON RECORD
OUT OF 119 YEARS.
NEEDLESS TO SAY...THIS RAIN ESSENTIALLY ERADICATED
LINGERING DROUGHT CONDITIONS ACROSS THE MAJORITY OF SOUTH CENTRAL
NEBRASKA...INCLUDING ALL OF HALL COUNTY...WHICH BY MONTHS END WAS
INDICATED TO BE VOID OF ALL DROUGHT PER THE WEEKLY U.S. DROUGHT
MONITOR.

FOCUSING ON JUNE PRECIPITATION IN MORE DETAIL...THE MONTHLY TOTAL OF
9.65 INCHES AT CENTRAL NEBRASKA REGIONAL AIRPORT WAS A NOTABLE 5.35
INCHES ABOVE THE 30-YEAR JUNE NORMAL OF 4.30 INCHES. PUT ANOTHER
WAY...GRAND ISLAND RECEIVED 225 PERCENT OF NORMAL JUNE
PRECIPITATION. THIS RESULTED IN THE 3RD-WETTEST JUNE ON RECORD OUT
OF 119 YEARS DATING TO 1896...TRAILING ONLY 13.96 INCHES IN 1967 AND
9.85 INCHES IN 2008.
FORTUNATELY FOR FLOODING CONCERNS...THIS
PRECIPITATION SPACED ITSELF OUT FAIRLY EVENLY OVER THE COURSE OF THE
MONTH. THE HIGHEST CALENDAR-DAY TOTAL...WHICH WAS ALSO A DAILY
RECORD...WAS 2.59 INCHES ON THE 14TH. OTHER NOTABLE DAILY TOTALS
INCLUDED 1.93 INCHES ON THE 3RD AND 1.59 INCHES ON THE 20TH.

TEMPERATURE-WISE...IT WAS A FAIRLY TYPICAL AND NON-NEWSWORTHY JUNE
WITH THE MAJORITY OF DAYS FEATURING HIGHS SOMEWHERE IN THE 80S AND
THE MAJORITY OF NIGHTS FEATURING LOWS SOMEWHERE IN THE 60S. OVERALL
THOUGH...IT WAS A SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN NORMAL MONTH AS THE MONTHLY
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE (RESULTING FROM AVERAGING BOTH THE HIGHS AND
LOWS) WAS 72.7 DEGREES...1.4 DEGREES ABOVE THE 30-YEAR NORMAL. THIS
ABOVE NORMAL OVERALL MONTHLY AVERAGE WAS LARGELY DRIVEN BY DAILY LOW
TEMPERATURES...WHICH AVERAGED 2.4 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. OF THE 30
DAYS DURING THE MONTH...16 FEATURED AN ABOVE NORMAL AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE...11 WERE BELOW NORMAL AND THREE DAYS MATCHED THE DAILY
NORMAL. ALTHOUGH NOT SIGNIFICANTLY COOL OR HOT BY ANY MEANS...THE
OVERALL-COOLEST AND WARMEST WEEKS OF THE MONTH OCCURRED NEARLY BACK-
TO-BACK BETWEEN THE 7TH-13TH AND THE 16TH-22ND. DURING THE COOLEST
WEEK FROM THE 7TH-13TH...SIX DAYS FAILED TO EXCEED 80
DEGREES...INCLUDING TWO DAYS THAT ONLY REACHED THE 60S. THIS WEEK
CONTAINED BOTH THE COOLEST LOW TEMPERATURE (49 ON THE 13TH) AND
COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE (66 ON THE 7TH) OF THE MONTH. IN
CONTRAST...DURING THE WARMEST WEEK FROM THE 16TH-22ND...FOUR OF
SEVEN DAYS REACHED AT LEAST 89 DEGREES. DURING THIS STRETCH...THE
18TH FEATURED BOTH THE HOTTEST MONTHLY HIGH TEMPERATURE (96) AND
ALSO THE MILDEST LOW (75). BEYOND THE 20TH...THE MONTH ENDED WITH
VERY CONSISTENT TEMPERATURES...AS EACH OF THE FINAL 10 DAYS FEATURED
HIGHS IN THE 80S AND LOWS IN THE 60S.  THE MOST EXTREME DAY-TO-DAY
FLUCTUATION IN HIGH TEMPERATURES DURING JUNE WAS 21
DEGREES...FEATURING A NOTICEABLE COOL-DOWN FROM 87 DEGREES ON THE
6TH TO 66 ON THE 7TH.

AS FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...THE MOST NOTABLE EVENT OF THE
MONTH WITHIN AND IMMEDIATELY NEAR THE CITY LIMITS OCCURRED ON THE
EVENING OF THE 20TH...AS A SLOW-MOVING SUPERCELL STORM POUNDED
PRIMARILY NORTHERN AND CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE CITY WITH LARGE HAIL
RANGING FROM QUARTER SIZE ALL THE WAY UP TO BASEBALL SIZE FOR AT
LEAST 20 MINUTES.
LATER THAT EVENING...ANOTHER SEVERE STORM PRODUCED
THE HIGHEST PEAK WIND GUST OF THE MONTH AT THE AIRPORT...58 MPH FROM
THE WEST. ALTHOUGH NOT NEARLY AS SIGNIFICANT AS WHAT OCCURRED ON THE
20TH...THE EVENING OF THE 14TH ALSO FEATURED SEVERAL REPORTS OF HAIL
RANGING FROM NICKEL SIZE TO GOLF BALL SIZE. NO TORNADOES WERE
REPORTED WITHIN HALL COUNTY DURING THE MONTH. INCLUDING THE 58 MPH
WIND GUST ON THE 20TH...THERE WERE FOUR JUNE DAYS THAT FEATURED PEAK
GUSTS OF AT LEAST 47 MPH.
