Let's take a look at the record spell of heat we just had...

THURSDAY, June 28th: 103 (beat old record of 102, set highest June temp)

FRIDAY, June 29th: 105 (beat old record of 102, new highest June temp)

SATURDAY, June 30th: 104 (beat old record of 99)

SUNDAY, July 1st: 103, (beat old record of 99)

Today's high up to 98, near the record of 100, set in 1925.

Looking ahead, our temperatures take a slight dip to the mid 90s through the 4th of July holiday.  The heat index could still be near 100 during the afternoon.  Each day we'll have a slight chance of pop-up showers and storms, which could pack a punch with heavy rain, hail, and gusty winds.  Like the image below here, the storms got big enough to produce hail larger than quarter-size in Salem, Indiana (picture from DeAnna and Doyle).  Take a look below the images for your June summary.

As we know June ended up hot and dry, and here are the official numbers.

Hottest temp: 105 (29th)

Coolest: 42 (1st)

Entire month: 1.6 degrees above average

.79" rainfall, 3" below normal
