Forecast for early July: More mugginess, just like June

Inches of rain that drenched Champaign-Urbana last month. That's almost 4 inches more than the normal 4.34 and represents the ninth-rainiest June in C-U weather history, says state climatologist Jim Angel.

8

Days in which local thermometers reached 90 or higher, which ought to be the case again today. C-U was about 2 degrees above normal for June; statewide, the number was 3.1, with an average temp of 75.

Local independence days this decade that came with rain showers. There's just a 30 percent chance of wet weather dampening our Wednesday, according to News-Gazette Media meteorologist Greg Soulje.
