Happy Father’s Day. With one full day of spring left, we started looking two weather items: the heat and the rain. So far this year, we have had 23 days above 90 degrees. Of those, five hit 99 and two of those broke daily records back in May of this year. So far, DFW hasn’t hit 100 degrees although some local thermometers have made it to triple digits. Last year, through June 19th, we had 18 days above 90 degrees and the hottest was only 93. That was followed by a summer in which we only hit 100 degrees once; that was on July 16th. As for the rain, so far this month we have seen exactly 50% of normal; 1.14″. For the year, we’re at 73% of normal with 13.17″ of rain at DFW. Although we didn’t know it last year at this time, we were beginning the wettest June, July and August ever, reversing a drought and keeping the temperature down and the humidity up. Have a great week.
