- June brought conditions that seesawed as May did with a very warm first half of the month, even record-breaking in many locations, followed by near normal to cool second half of the month. However, overall June ended up warmer than average over most of the western US. The month also brought moderate to extremely dry conditions, increasing drought concerns in the PNW and concern for fire risk across the west.
- Growing degree-day accumulations are running 50-250 GDD above average in all but portions of the central coast and southern California, which are closer to average or slightly below average.
- The forecast through mid-month indicates a mild start to July gradually warming later in the month with no major heat events, or extreme fire weather conditions, or likely any precipitation over the vast majority of the western US.
