June Summary

 Across most of southern Indiana and central Kentucky, June 2014 was a warm and dry month.  After a bit of a slow start to summer, hot temperatures invaded the region by mid-month with widespread afternoon readings in the 90s from the 16th to the 23rd.  The heat peaked on the 19th and 20th when many locations reached the middle 90s.

Our slow severe weather season continued in June, with severe weather occurring on only five days of the month, with no major outbreaks and no tornadoes.  The strongest wind gust of the month was 69 mph near Madison, Indiana on the 23rd.  The largest hailstone of the month was ping pong ball sized (1.5" diameter) near Skaggstown in Grayson County, also on the 23rd, and was actually the only instance of large hail (>1") during the entire month!

Bowling Green wall cloud

This scary-looking wall cloud moved directly over Bowling Green on the 4th, but fortunately never produced a tornado.  Jason Darnall
