Châteauguay Valley Weather June summary 2022

June was exceptional for rainfall, and right on for average temperature, the result of which is everything is green, green, green and growing, growing, growing.

Lots of rain doesn’t begin to describe the amount of precipitation that descended in June. The final count for Ormstown was 193 mm (7.6”) which is effectively double the normal amount. Hence the green, green, green and a substantial amount of hay that has been difficult to find a few days to cut and dry without getting rained on.

The average temperature for June ended up at 18.6 degrees Celsius, which is right on the button for the month. The mini-heatwave towards the end of the month made up for what were generally cooler nights throughout the month.

The corn heat units (CHU) did slightly better than average, coming in at 673 CHU. Since May 12th, total CHU accumulation has been 1071, with normal being 1063 CHU.

Despite continuing cool nights – it ‘dipped’ to 11 degrees Celsius one night in the last week of June – the corn is shoulder-high in some fields around the Valley. While the crops in a few fields are showing signs of water stress, anything with fruits – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and tomatoes is looking plump and abundant.
