June 2010 sets warmth record in Washington D.C.


Although, past two days, it has been really cool for July in Washington, D.C. area, June 2010 finished as the warmest on record for D.C.  With an average temperature of 80.6 degrees, we surpassed the old June record by over a degree, making it the warmest June since records began in 1871.

The top 15 warmest Junes on record since 1871 in Washington, D.C. 2010 set a new record by a significant margin.

Our recent streak of hot weather ended up as one of the longest heat waves for this early in the season and contributed to a record-tying number of June days at or above 90 — 7 of which finished above 95 and one at 100. Two daily record highs were set during the month as well.

The top 15 Junes on record since 1872, ranked by days at or above 90 degrees at Washington, D.C.

That being said, I think we will be seeing another report next month calling  July of 2010 as the coolest month on record in Washington, D.C. The weather has been amazing past two days and I hope you have been enjoying it.
