A cooler, wetter June this year

Early indications for a warmer, drier start to July from forecasters

Rain in June caused a number of rivers in the Peace region to rise considerably prompting advisories and watches from the Rivers Forecast Centre.

If you thought June in Fort St. John was cool and wet, you'd be right.

Maybe, not record-breaking, but it certainly didn't feel like spring or summer for much of the month.

On only 15 days did the temperature at the city's official weather station actually climb above 20 degrees, and on just two, the mercury just barely reached 14 degrees.

Compare that to last year, during the province's heat dome, where the daytime highs from June 25-30 were all above 30, peaking at 38.1 on June 29.

For this year, though, the highest temperature in June was on the last day of the month at 26.9 degrees; ironically, the coolest mark came on the first day, an overnight low of 5.2.

Rainfall for June 2022 was slightly above the average of 45 millimetres at (exactly) 60 millimetres – the wettest day, the 17th, saw the rain gauge record 17.4 mm, most of it in a 14-hour window.

Except for Canada Day yesterday, a warm-up is on the way, with temperatures for the first two weeks of July expected to be in the 20s for daytime highs; overnight lows, meantime, will be in the double digits.
