Juneau had the second warmest summer on record in 2013. The average high temperature for June through August was 66 degrees. The warmest summer was in 2004 with an average high temperature of 68.6 degrees. National Weather Service Meteorologist Richard Lam said the high temperature average for June through July is 62.9 degrees.

Juneau had four days with highs in the 80s this summer. Lam said the warmest day was June 16, which hit 85 degrees.

The average minimum temperature for this summer was 49.6 degrees, exactly one degree warmer than average. This year’s minimum average temperature was the fourth warmest on record.

Precipitation this summer was slightly less than average. Juneau had 12.54 inches of rain; 13.57 inches is the average.

“It’s nothing spectacular,” Lam said. “It’s a normal variance.”
