The graphic to the left compiles the average temperatures during the day and night in each region of Indiana.

Averages Last Year

The average temperatures during June for Indianapolis were almost exactly as predicted in the graphic to the left in the beginning of the month, but gradually getting colder as the month progressed. Comparing the first two weeks of June in 2022:

Jun. 1 - a high of 85 and a low of 70.

Jun. 15 - a high of 92 and a low of 75.

What Can We Expect?

Based on the expected temps in the graphic above and the average temps from last year we can expect June to be hot. Last year there was a slight heat wave in the middle of June and it stayed hot after that, getting into the high 90s some days. We'll see if the same thing happens this year.

Weather + Phenology: How Do They Relate?

The temperature impacts the phenology cycle of plants especially during these critical season changes. At this time in Indiana, the temp is getting low enough to cause leaves to start changing color and fall off their trees. If there is a drastic change in the typical expected temp for this month or next, it could lead to this process happening sooner than normal, or later than normal. This in turn affects the life cycle timing for many insects and animals who use these plants as a food source.
