...June 2022 Northern and Eastern Maine Climate Narrative...

June 2022 finished a little cooler than average with wetter
than normal conditions across the North and drier across Central
and Downeast areas.

Temperatures generally ranged from 0.5 to 1.5 degrees below
average across the region, which was in sharp contrast to the
prior two Junes which were amongst the warmest Junes on record
for the region. Frequent cold frontal passages and upper level
low pressure systems kept sunshine at a premium and temperatures
reaching highs of 80+ across Northern locations such as Caribou
until the 25th. Interestingly, the coolest day of the month was on
the 19th when high temperatures across some locations remained
below 50 degrees, as evident by high of 49 degrees at Caribou
which was 47 degrees cooler than the all time record tying high of
96 degrees on this date two years ago. Warmest high temperatures
this month occurred on the 25th and 26th where most locations
reached 80s to lower 90s as evident by highs of 90 and 92 degrees,
respectively, at Bangor.

Rainfall varied widely this month, to less than 50 percent of
average over some Downeast locations like Bangor, to locally
upwards to 130+ percent of average over extreme Northern Maine.
At Bangor, the 1.49 inch total for the month was the 6th driest
on record with the driest June at Bangor 0.87 inches set in 1930
(meteorological records at Bangor began in 1925). Wettest days,
mainly across the North, occurred on 5-6th, 9-10th, and 18-20th.
Total evaporation at Caribou as measured from the 4th onward for
the month was 3.55 inches, but this likely was underestimate for
Central and Downeast areas which had more sunshine. In any event,
there were rainfall - evaporation surpluses across the north and
deficits across Central and Interior Downeast areas.

The Climate Prediction Center`s forecast for the Month of July for
our region is calling for slightly increased odds of above normal
over near or below normal temperatures and near equal odds of
above, near, or below normal rainfall. Average temperatures range
from lows and highs of mid 50s and mid to upper 70s over far
Northern areas to upper 50s and around 80 degrees for Interior
Downeast areas. Average July rainfall ranges from near 3.25 inches
over Downeast areas upwards to 4.25 inches across the extreme
