What to Expect in June of 2020 for Minnesota


    June has arrived and so has the first day of Meteorological Summer, and this year is looking like a near-average month temperature-wise. If you recall back to last year, we only had a handful of days where our day time high temperature was above 80° and we only had a little under an inch and a half of rain as well. Let’s take a look at what we can expect in June for precipitation and temperatures here in the Twin Cities area.

    TEMPERATURES: According to the Climate Prediction Center, Minnesota, as well as most of the United States except for the northwest coast is looking at some above-average temperatures. This warmer weather even includes Alaska. The graphics below show the temperature outlook for the month of June issued by the Climate Prediction Center and a look at the average and record temperatures for June.
