Summer 2012 will be remembered for its heat. From June 1 to August 31, 21 days had temperatures over 30°C. This is in fact more than in Summer 2011, when we only had 19 days over 30°C. The normal for the 3 month-period is 11 days.
|It has been a dry summer|
Each month had below normal precipitation, making the summer as a whole the 10th driest. Interestingly, 3 of the past 7 summers have been among the top 10 driest since 1873 (2006-2011-2012).
Of note, this year is on the right track to being among the top 5 warmest years since 1873. Of course this will depend on this Fall and December. But we really have been on a long warm streak. The past three seasons have been among the top 10 warmest:
- 4th warmest Winter
- 2nd warmest Spring
- tied 10th warmest Summer
