AFTER WARM WEATHER FOR THE FIRST TWO DAYS OF THE MONTH, A SHIFT TO  
ONSHORE WINDS BROUGHT SEVERAL DAYS OF COOL, DAMP CONDITIONS. THE  
TEMPERATURE DID NOT EVEN REACH 65 DEGREES FOR 5 STRAIGHT DAYS. BUT  
SOON THE WEATHER PATTERN WOULD RETURN TO WHAT HAD BECOME NORMAL FOR  
LATE SPRING: ROUND AFTER ROUND OF COOL, DRY HIGH PRESSURE DROPPING  
SOUTHEAST OUT OF THE ARCTIC AND INTO NEW ENGLAND. THIS BROUGHT WARM  
DAYS AND COOL NIGHTS FOR MUCH OF THE MONTH WITH ONLY BRIEF PERIODS  
OF WARM, HUMID WEATHER AHEAD OF EACH COLD FRONT. THE WARMEST DAY WAS  
ON JUNE 18 WHEN THE TEMPERATURE REACHED 87 DEGREES BEFORE A COLD  
FRONT BROUGHT THUNDERSTORMS, NEARLY AN INCH OF RAIN, AND A RETURN TO  
THE DRY WEATHER. THE PATTERN BEGAN TO SHIFT AT THE END OF JUNE,  
THOUGH, WHEN A STRONGER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM BROUGHT MORE THAN 2  
INCHES OF RAIN ON JUNE 28, THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL RAINFALL RECORDED AT  
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN GRAY SINCE APRIL. THIS  
SIGNALED A SHIFT IN THE WEATHER PATTERN AS WARM, HUMID AIR BEGAN  
MOVING INTO NEW ENGLAND FROM THE SOUTHWEST BRINGING SUMMER LIKE  
WARMTH FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS OF THE MONTH.  
 
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 63.1 DEGREES WHICH WAS 1.0  
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THE COOLEST JUNE ON RECORD WAS ONLY 60.6  
DEGREES IN 2015 AND 1998. THE WARMEST WAS 67.6 DEGREES IN 2001 AND  
1999.  
 
A TOTAL OF 4.26 INCHES OF RAIN FELL WHICH WAS 0.04 INCHES BELOW  
NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST RAIN FELL ON JUNE 27 AND 28 WHEN 2.26 INCHES  
WAS RECORDED. THE DRIEST JUNE ON RECORD WAS IN 1999 WHILE THE  
WETTEST WAS IN 2012 WITH 11.07 INCHES.
