Climate trends: June was cooler and wetter than normal

Junes in Philadelphia are increasingly hotter, so this past month was an exception.

Despite temperatures rising (and even breaking the global temperature records this week), June was slightly cooler and wetter than normal, according to new data from Climate Central.

June’s average temperature in Philadelphia of 70.6°F was 2.9° below normal, and the 4.24 inches of precipitation was 105% of the normal amount. On average, Junes are getting an average of 3.1°F warmer since 1970.

This past month also had unusually high and hazardous air quality warnings, with wildfire smoke from Canada affecting Philadelphia.
