Hot Start to Summer

That cold and wet winter seems like a distant memory now. Summer 2010 is off to a hot start in North Carolina. In fact, June 2010 is setting up to be one of the hottest Junes on record at least for Raleigh-Durham. Records have been kept at RDU since 1944.

According to information provided by the National Weather Service Office in Raleigh, the warmest June on record was June 2008 when the average temperature was 80.7. So far, the average temperature for June 2010 is 80.4.

With afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s and morning lows in the 70s in the forecast at least into early next week, it looks like June 2010 will challenge June 2008 as the hottest June on record.
