Columbus sets record as Georgia marks hot June

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's state climatologist's office says June was 1 of the hottest on record in various Georgia cities, and the warmest ever recorded in Columbus.

Assistant climatologist Pam Knox says the average temperature for the month in Columbus was 84.4 degrees, 5.2 degrees above normal for June and the highest for the 64 Junes for which records have been kept for the west Georgia city.

A few other cities just missed setting records for June. Macon averaged 82.9 degrees, 4.9 degrees above normal and the second-highest average for the 119 years records have been kept there. Atlanta was at 81.2 degrees, 4.4 degrees above normal and third in 133 years of record-keeping.

Knox says Atlanta's high for June was set in 1952, at 82.3 degrees, while 2010 was second at 81.4.
