June 2012 Ending Hot

June 2012 will end on a hot note across much of the central Plains, including eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.  Temperatures will be close to normal on Monday 6/25, but they will soar well above normal through the rest of the work week.

The area has seen an above average number of days that have hit or exceeded 90 degrees so far this year.  Omaha recorded its first ever 90+ degree reading in March this year, while Lincoln also tallied one day.  The 90+ degree days continued to accumulate in April and May, both months that often go without seeing 90 degrees at all.  All of the years in the top 10 of 90+ degree days have gone on to have above normal numbers of 90+ degree days for the year.

Also, the year-to-date continues to be the warmest on record at all three sites.

 

 

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts to see how close to those record readings we might reach!
