June 2013 was well above normal across all of New Mexico. Precipitation was highly varied, from little or no rain in the west to well above normal rainfall over portions of the east.

Isolated severe weather struck eastern New Mexico on the 2nd and 3rd, with more widespread reports of large hail and high winds on the 5th and 7th. Mostly dry and hot weather was the rule from the 8th through the 12th, although strong winds from a virga shower struck Albuquerque on the evening of the 10th,, knocking down power lines in far west and northeast sections of the city. Very isolated severe weather impacted the east from the 13th - 17th, then more widespread severe weather was noted over the eastern plains on the 18th and 19th. Less storm coverage was noted on the 20th and 21st with very isolated severe weather. It was completely dry on the 22nd, then only limited storms on the 23rd through 27th. An increase in convection took place over the last three days of the month as an active weather pattern with decent moisture got underway.
