THE MONTH OF JUNE WAS DRIER THAN NORMAL WITH NEAR AVERAGE  
TEMPERATURES IN THE MANCHESTER AREA. THE PRIMARY FEATURE WHICH  
DOMINATED THE WEATHER PATTERN WAS AN ANOMALOUS TROUGH OF LOW  
PRESSURE THAT STARTED TO DEVELOP DURING THE SECOND WEEK OF THE MONTH  
AND REMAINED THROUGH THE THIRD WEEK OF THE MONTH. BEFORE THIS TROUGH  
ESTABLISHED ITSELF, TEMPERATURES AVERAGED NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW  
NORMAL THROUGH THE FIRST 3 DAYS OF THE MONTH. A COLD FRONT THEN  
CROSSED THE AREA ON THE 4TH, WHICH RESULTED IN SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS  
ACROSS PORTIONS OF INTERIOR NEW HAMPSHIRE AND WESTERN MAINE. WEAK  
UPPER LEVEL RIDGING THEN MOVED IN FROM THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY  
BEHIND THIS FRONT, RESULTING IN MODERATING TEMPERATURES AND MAINLY  
DRY CONDITIONS BETWEEN THE 6TH AND 15TH WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A  
WETTING RAINFALL ON THE 8TH TO THE 9TH FROM AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE  
CROSSING OVER SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. HIGH PRESSURE THEN BUILT ACROSS  
THE AREA, ALLOWING FOR MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS AND NEAR NORMAL  
TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE 16TH BEFORE AN ANOMALOUS UPPER LEVEL LOW  
BROUGHT COOLER THAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES FOR THE 18TH THROUGH THE  
23RD WITH SOME MOUNTAIN SNOW ACROSS THE HIGHEST PEAKS OF THE WHITE  
MOUNTAINS. UPPER LEVEL RIDGING THEN FOLLOWED, WITH MODERATING  
TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE MONTH, PEAKING ON THE 26TH  
WHEN THE HIGH TEMPERATURE REACHED 94 DEGREES.  
 
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 68.4 DEGREES, WHICH WAS  
0.3 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE. THE WARMEST JUNE ON RECORD WAS IN 2021  
WHEN THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 72.9 DEGREES. THE COLDEST WAS 61.4  
DEGREES IN 1947.  
 
A TOTAL OF 2.67 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL, WHICH WAS 1.37 INCHES  
BELOW NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION FELL ON JUNE 9TH WHEN 1.06  
INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL. THE DRIEST JUNE ON RECORD WAS IN 1997  
WHEN ONLY 0.88 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL. THE WETTEST WAS 10.79  
INCHES IN 1998.  
 
HISTORICAL RECORDS AT MANCHESTER BEGAN IN 1885, BUT WITHIN THIS  
RECORD THERE REMAIN NUMEROUS YEARS OF UNAVAILABLE DATA. DUE TO THIS,  
HISTORICAL RECORDS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED INCOMPLETE AS SOME  
SIGNIFICANT EXTREMES MAY BE MISSING FROM THE DATA. MORE CONSISTENT  
MODERN RECORDS BEGAN IN 1998 AND CONTINUE TO THE PRESENT.
