KAMLOOPS – Ranging from cool and wet to hot and dry, June weather had it all and if it seemed like the wet weather was more than normal and the weather hotter than normal, it was, but not by as much as you may think.

The average daily high temperature in June is 24.8 C with an average of 35.2 mm of rain over the entire month.

Based on the numbers reported there were several hot days, and several cool days, with the daily temperatures reaching an average of 25 C over the entire month and rainfall accumulation reaching around the 50 mm. mark.

That being said there was at least two days where temperatures did not even reach 20 C and several others that sat at least several degrees below the normal average. The two coolest days were also the ones that brought the most precipitation with 25.3 mm falling in less than 48 hours. That same system washed out highways, led to localized flooding in several B.C. communities and caused devastating flooding in southern Alberta. Normally Kamloops records about 11 days with rainfall during the month but in 2013 another 13 days brought precipitation, with at least a trace of rain falling 15 of 25 days reported.

Wind was another issue during the month of June, with all but five days showing gusts reaching over 32 km/h, well above the normal wind speeds of 10.6 km/h.

A new weather reporting system came into play halfway through the month for Kamloops, making Environment Canada reports incomplete on several days.
