A Very Dry June

After persistent and soaking rain that flooded area rivers and farm fields this spring, June has been a complete 180 to very dry conditions. Here is where the past three months have registered:

April: 6.33" --2nd wettest all time
May: 5.88" --9th wettest all time
June: 0.51" --3rd driest all time

The only years that eclipse this year's bone dry weather in June were in 1946 with 0.27" and 1876 with 0.12" of precipitation.
