REMARKS...

FOR THE MONTH...TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION ENDED UP SLIGHTLY
ABOVE NORMAL. HEAVY RAIN FELL FROM LATE IN THE AFTERNOON OF JUNE 9
THROUGH MUCH OF THE NIGHT. 2.31 INCHES FELL ON THE 9TH...BREAKING
THE RECORD PRECIPITATION MARK FOR THAT DAY. A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS
MOVED THROUGH DURING THE EVENING OF JUNE 22...AND BROUGHT
STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS THAT CAUSED SOME TREE BRANCHES TO FALL IN
PORTIONS OF THE CITY. HEAT INDICES TOPPED AROUND 105 DEGREES ON THE
29TH AND 30TH. THE HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A THUNDERSTORM ON THE EVENING OF THE 29TH THAT PRODUCED A WEAK
AND BRIEF TORNADO IN NORTH TOPEKA. DAMAGE FROM THE TORNADO WAS
LIMITED TO A FEW LOCATIONS ALONG A 1.6 MILE PATH AND PRIMARILY
CAUSED DAMAGE TO SOME TREES.
