Expect Average Rain, Temperatures this Summer

Near normal conditions should prevail the next three months preview the future forecast on the first day of summer. Weathereye Meteorologist Michael Karow says the cool, wet spring was caused by systems that tracked along a stationary route that was parked over the state. Karow says that as June has started, the jet stream has started pushing further to the north. As that happens, temperatures and precipitation totals will become closer to normal. From March-through-May, Marion County received 18 inches of rain, more than eight inches above normal. Since June started, we’re a bit below normal in rainfall, and about two degrees cooler than normal temperature-wise.
