The weather last month was warmer and drier on average than most Junes, according to the National Weather Service.
Eight straight days – June 16 to 23 – of 100-degree weather contributed to making Sacramento in June hotter than usual.
The hottest day in the month was June 22, when the temperature hit 108 degrees. The average high temperature was a toasty 91.6 degrees, which is 3.7 degrees above normal.
The city had a little rainfall: 0.18 of an inch on June 8, which is a bit drier than usual. Other spots that had a warmer-than-usual June: Redding, Grass Valley and Blue Canyon.
