A wet June can predict how future months will fare

It's been a pretty wet month of June this year, and it's not over yet.
Severe Weather Team 9 meteorologist Jeff Oechslein takes a look at the averages for the month and explains how a wet June can predict how future months will fare.
It has been wet of late -- 16 out of 25 days this month featured some rainfall. But we often have short-term memory as last June, we had 13 out of the first 25 days of the month feature rainfall.
Believe it or not, June and July are historically our wettest months on average.
Some of this is skewed by downpours in thunderstorms though. This June will go down in the record books as much wetter than average, even if we don't record another drop. But we will likely add to it.  
Sometimes a wetter start to summer can lead to a cooler summer. For instance, last year we recorded above normal rainfall in June and recorded only three days of 90-degree heat for the entire summer.  Conversely, going into summer dry like we did in 2012 led to a very hot summer with 19 days of 90-degree heat.
