Rainfall double, triple normal for first nine days of June

The National Weather Service is trying to salvage something in the way of mild spring weather this month by predicting that Monday will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower 70s.

The sunny weather will be short-lived.

By Tuesday, another low pressure area moves across the region, bringing clouds and a 30 percent chance of showers. Highs should stay mild in the lower 70s on Tuesday.

The shower threat increases by Tuesday night and Wednesday, but temperatures will remain mild with highs near 70 and lows near 50.

Spokane International Airport had 0.16 inches of rain on Saturday, bringing the total for June to 1.19 inches, which is more than double the normal rainfall through June 9.

Some locations have seen triple the normal amount of rainfall for early June.

Felts Field near Millwood has seen 1.56 inches of rain compared with an average for the first nine days of the month of 0.53 inches.

Wednesday’s rain storm stalled to the north of the Spokane airport and was more intense in locations to the north of Spokane, including Deer Park.

Deer Park has had 2.07 inches compared with an average of 0.66.

Pullman is almost four times above normal for early June with 1.17 inches compared with a normal of 0.36 inches.
