WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - If this June seemed hotter than normal, then you'd be right.  June of 2010 was the second hottest on record.

With an average high temperature of 90.8 degrees and an average daily temperature of 82.2 degrees those stats put this June as the second hottest June ever. 

However it is the average low temperature of 73.6 degrees that gives this June the distinction of being the hottest June on record.

Wilmington isn't the only area that experienced record heat.  Myrtle Beach had record warmth in all three categories.  It also set a record for receiving the least amount of rainfall in the month of June.

In the Port City we also tied another record for June.  We had 10 back-to-back days of 90 degree or above heat.  This is tied for third for consecutive number days above 90 in June.

While June was hot, the first part of July will be a return to normal temperatures and will feel great.
