So far, this June has been the hottest on record, according to KTAL Chief Meteorologist Todd Warren.
"Average temperature through Sunday has been 86.1 (while the) record is 85.8 set back in 1881," said Warren
"We will probably end up below the record as I expect cooler temperatures for the next week.
Pretty good bet that this June will be in the top five hottest."
According to Warren
, one of the reasons for the high temperatures this year is the drought.
"Since the soil is so dry, more of the sun's energy is going to heating the air instead of evaporating soil moisture," he
"I'm looking for a slightly above normal year in the tropics this year with 12-15 named storms," said Warren
"It will likely be a long hot summer," said Warren
