June temperatures remain fairly consistent in Chemainus

Only one very hot dry around the middle of the month

June was about as close to normal for the month in the Chemainus Valley as you’re going to get.

The mean daily maximum temperature of 21.0 degrees Cesius and the mean minimum of 11.8 C were both exactly the same as the normals.

The total rainfall of 40.0 millimetres was also extremely close to the normal of 43.5 mm, albeit only slightly below.

The days of mostly or partly sunny conditions were slightly less with 10 compared to the normal of 14. But the rain fell more in dribs and drabs, with 14 of 20 days producing precipitation.

The normal number of precipitation days is 10.

June’s extreme maximum temperature was 32.0 C on June 18. Only a week earlier, the extreme minimum of 7.0 C occurred on June 11.

“June was almost a carbon copy of the previous month, meaning that the early summer weather that arrived May 3 continued almost unchanged into June,” noted Chris Carss, a volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada in Chemainus.

“With the exception of a boiling hot day in mid-June, the daily temperature curve mostly flat-lined for the better part of two months until the end of June, which meant well above normal temperatures in May, but exactly normal temperatures for June. The temperature trend has started to climb upward once again as we approach the middle of July.”

The rest of July, Carss added, should provide warm seasonal weather with variable to mostly sunny skies and daytime temperatures mostly in the mid-20s.
