...Near to Above Normal Rainfall in June 2017...

June saw the passage of a tropical storm near the Upper Texas Coast;
although, Cindy did not bring much rainfall to the area as it did to 
states east of Texas. However, Tropical Storm Cindy did help the month 
of June end with near to above normal rainfall over the central and
coastal counties. Temperatures for June ended within 1 degree of 
normal at most of the reporting sites. Drought was not a problem; 
although, some areas west of metropolitan Houston did see abnormally dry
conditions develop for most of the month.

Tropical Storm Cindy developed in the central Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday,
June 20th. The storm then moved inland early Thursday morning the 22nd
near Sabine Pass on the Texas/Louisiana border. For the most part,
rainfall from Cindy was minimal across Southeast Texas; although, some 
eastern counties at the coast did see over 2 inches.

Otherwise, a series of upper level systems helped bring generally cooler 
and rainy periods during the first of the month. Cindy and another 
series of upper level systems brought rainfall in the last of the month.
Mid June saw hot and dry conditions as an upper level ridge built over 
the state.

The overall monthly rainfall helped keep drought conditions from taking
a hold over Southeast Texas. However, the U.S. Drought Monitor did note
that abnormally dry conditions did develop mainly west of the
metropolitan Houston area. The month began with abnormally dry
conditions from Harris County westward through Austin, Washington and 
Colorado counties. Beneficial rainfall helped ease these conditions so 
that for most of the remainder of the month only Washington County had 
abnormally dry conditions. Here is a week-by-week breakdown of the 
conditions throughout the month of June for all or part of each county.

For the week ending:
May 30th. . . .D-0 in Austin, Colorado, Washington, Waller and
               Harris counties

June 6th. . . .D-0 in Colorado County

June 13th . . .D-0 in Austin, Colorado and Washington counties

June 20th . . .D-0 in Austin, Colorado and Washington counties

June 27th . . .D-0 in Washington County
