Châteauguay Valley Weather June 12-18, 2022 By Peter Finlayson

June has continued on the cool side due to several days when the daytime high fell far short of normal. The average temperature for June now stands at 18.0 degrees Celsius, up slightly from the week before at 17.1 degrees Celsius, but still below the normal for the month at 18.6 degrees Celsius.

The nighttime low on Saturday dipped to 8 degrees Celsius (and only 3 degrees Celsius on the ground!), so it’s going to be a challenge to reach the average temperature by month’s end with no substantive heat wave in sight.

There was 26 mm of rain in the last week, and Thursday’s heavy downpour and winds flattened a few hay fields. Fortunately, the area did not receive the massive drenching experienced in Montreal and other surrounding communities, which, in some locations, exceeded 40 mm within an hour. The month-to-date total is now 65 mm of rain, which is somewhat above normal.

The corn heat units (CHU) continued to keep pace despite the coolish weather, with 390 CHU accumulated so far in June, which is pretty much where it should be and on track for being normal for the month – that being 655 CHU. The total for the season now stands at 798 CHU.

The strawberries are excellent and abundant, so there will be lots to go around at the strawberry socials in the coming weeks. The corn will easily make ‘knee-high by the 1st of July’. Although, it’s been tough making hay in between the frequent shower activity.
