...Data for North Little Rock for June 2017...

.Summary...
Things were very different this June compared to much of the last 
decade. While there were a few days with temperatures above the 30-
year average, this was not the case in most of the month. This was 
the coolest June by average high, low and monthly temperatures in 14 
years. 

Incredibly enough, there was only one 90-degree day at North Little 
Rock during June. Since records began in late 1975, this is the 
fewest number of 90-degree days ever recorded in the month of June. 
This eclipsed the previous record of four, which was back in 2014. 

The highest temperature recorded during the month was only 90 
degrees, which was a first for the month of June. In the other 40 
years of data recorded at North Little Rock, the highest June 
temperatures have always been 91 degrees or greater. That was not 
the case this year. 

Speaking of 90-degree days, the first one for the year was on June 
16th. This was the latest first 90-degree day since 1997, and the 
2nd latest since records began. 

The lowest temperature during the month was 60 degrees, which was
