July 4, 2014
The statewide average temperature in June was 70.6°. This is 0.5° above normal and ranks as the 29th warmest since 1895. More than a few people may be inclined to think the month was cooler than average. This might be due to the absence of an extended hot spell, the thermometer remaining below 90° over most of the northern third of the state, or a continued reaction to the earlier cold start of 2014 (more on this later).
June precipitation averaged 3.15", which is 0.87" below normal and ranks as the 47th driest. As expected during a warm-season month, rainfall was quite variable around NJ, ranging from 6.49" in Denville (Morris County) to 0.38" in Sea Isle City (Cape May).
