Weather Rewind: June 10th-16th, 2012
Rain on Tuesday -- nearly an inch locally, as much as four inches in parts of South Jersey -- transitioned our region from a warmer regime to a very nice and "seasonable" last half of the week. While temperatures will officially below average for the last half of the week, getting days like Friday and Saturday in summer are never a bad thing!
Nationally so far in June, the Mid Atlantic, East Coast, and Pacific Northwest all have been running below average on temperatures through the course of the month so far -- in the Pacific Northwest it's been by as much as six degrees from where June should be as a persistent trough has set up shop over them. The warmth has been confined to the Plains and Upper Midwest, with the warmest of the warm over the High Plains of Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas so far. The heat will shift east this week though!
