June's Heat A Clue To Rest Of Summer Temps

June 29, 2012, 5:06 PM by Scot Mundt

June's Heat A Clue To Rest Of Summer Temps

June's heat might be giving us clues at to what to expect the rest of summer.

The last four days of June might just end up with 90 degree temperatures and it could give Sioux Falls eight days in June with 90 degree heat. Over the past twenty-two years, this happened twice. It occurred in 1995 and 1990.

The Julys that followed those two years saw the heat continue with 99 degree days and two 100 days in 1995. July of 1990 only had four 90 degree days and one 100 degree day.

August remained hot during those years with thirteen 90 degree days and one 100 degree day in 1995 and ten 90 degree day in August of 1990.

And let's just hope the hot and dry weather doesn't continue like it did in 1988. That summer went down as the second hottest summer with the temperature average of the high and low just above 76 degrees.  It was just a half degree away from the hottest summer of 1936.

The average high in June 1988 was 90 degrees, five degrees below this June.  The summer of 1988 also featured 27 total 90 degree days and 14 total 100 degree days, six of which occurred in June.

The summer 1988 went down as the sixth driest on record too, with just under five and a half inches for June through August.

So far, Sioux Falls only has two-thirds of an inch, let's hope we're not looking down the barrel of the summer of 1988.
