Updated July 3:

I just reactivated the monthly webcam timelapses. So I will be adding them to the monthly summaries so not only can we see the stats, we can see the weather for the whole month too!

This June was a little warmer than normal (high above normal minimums near normal maximums) but with normal rainfall. The overall average temperature for all the stations in the Valley was 15.8C and an average of 48.6mm of rain fell. This is 1.3C above normal (May was 2.0C+) for temperature and just 0.8mm below normal for rainfall compared to the 1970-2000 normal daily averages for June at Environment Canada .

A quick comparison to recent years at Alberniweather (only).

Remember those “Bummer Summers”? No more!
2012: 2013 was over 3C warmer! 4C warmer on our maximums and 3C warmer on our minimums! We received 20mm less rain than 2012.
2011: 2013 was 2C warmer than 2011 but 2011 was very dry with only 17mm of rain.
2010: 2013 was 2C warmer than 2010. 2010 got half the rain we received this month. (21mm)
2009: 2009 was our last really warm year. 2009 was 1C warmer than this year. 2009 was also dry. (18mm)
2008: 2008 was another average/cool June, 2C cooler than 2013. 2008 and 2010 were quite similar for rain half this year. (27mm)

July has started off with a bang! We’ll see how it all shakes out next month at this time.
