June in Little Rock — cooler

Posted By on Mon, Jul 2, 2012 at 8:54 AM

You know the old cliche about averages — one hand in a bucket of ice, one in boiling water and, on average, the temperature is just about right.

That was the story in Little Rock in June, which closed on a blistering run of triple-digit days highlighted by the 107 in Little Rock on June 28.

But, says the Weather Service, June wasn't even close to a record for heat because of cooler days earlier in the month and generally lower-than-normal overnight lows. From the monthly summary (their caps):

JUNE 2012 WAS A VERY CONTRASTING MONTH AT LITTLE ROCK. WHILE THERE WERE FIVE DAYS WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES AT OR ABOVE 100 DEGREES...LOW TEMPERATURES WERE THE COOLEST IN NINE YEARS. EVEN WITH ALL THE HOT TEMPERATURES THE MONTH DID NOT RANK AMONG THE WARMEST JUNES EVER RECORDED.

Feel better?
