May-June 2013 vs. 2012

June 13th, 2013 at 9:51 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

This time last year, the drought was rapidly worsening & data suggesting a significant heat wave developing down the road towards late June.  This occurred after a heat wave in May.

Yesterday, we had our first 90-degree day (of the year) at WLFI with 91.  At this time last year, we had already had 7 days at or above 90 for the year.

Many areas are much wetter for this month than we are here in West Lafayette here in 2013.  Some northwestern areas have already had 5″ of rain for the month of June so far.

It is interesting to compare what it was like at this time last year, compared to this year (in terms of moisture & temperature).

    Chad, I just looked over the data from June 1 – 14 2012 vs tJune this year. Last year’s total was .53 inches. This year’s total is 3.64. A Big difference a year makes.
