The National Climatic Data Center has compiled its statistics for the summer of 2013.

Nationwide, this was a warmer and wetter summer than usual, while Nebraska and Iowa were dry and near-normal to cool in temperatures.

The lower 48 states saw the 15th-warmest summer and eighth-wettest.

The warmth was driven by near-record heat in the west and northeast. The precipitation ranking was based on a rainy summer in the eastern United States. Some Eastern states saw their wettest summer on record. Others had near-record rains.

Nebraska had its 20th-driest summer and and 43rd-coolest (considered near-normal).

Iowa saw its 13th-driest summer and, like Nebraska, 43rd-coolest.

The data are based on 119 years of records. For record-keeping purposes, meteorologists define summer as June-July-August.
