June Continued

Yesterday in this blog I mentioned how this past June was one of the warmest on record, almost tied with last year.  If you live in Fargo, this past June was noticeably wetter than June 2020.  Yes, wetter.  Fargo finished below the current 30 year average for precipitation, but if you look at the long term average, the month was pretty close to average for rain.   Grand Forks finished with about 2.5 inches of rain, ranking as the 47th driest.   Bismarck only recorded a bit over 1.5 inches of rain last month and ranked as the 24th driest on record.  The Minot Extension center only recorded 1.8” last month and remains as one of the driest spots in North Dakota.
