... Warmest June on record... and dry too..

June was a month that many will remember for being warm. But it was
also quite dry... and quite sunny. Lighter onshore flow has lead to
more sunny days. Lack of fronts brought more dry days. And a late
month heat wave brought hot days and warm nights.

Even the rivers are running warmer than normal for late June. On the
29th... the Columbia near was Vancouver was around 70 deg which is 6
to 7 deg above its normal. The Willamette river near Salem was in
the middle 70s. Many other rivers are also warmer due to decreased
snow melt and lower levels.
