June is summer in Vermont with moderately warm temperatures, a little rain and mostly sunny days. Rain is to the tune of 4" (102mm) to 5" (127mm) in the state, and showers are unpredictable like the New England weather. Day temperatures are more on the warm than the hot side and usually range in the 65°F (18.3°C) to 75°F (23.9°C). Nights are comfortable and short during the summer, while temperatures are between 50°F (10°C) to 55°F (12.8°C). Rochester in Central Vermont averages a pleasant 50°F (10°C) to 75°F (23.9°C) in the early summer. Vermont follows Eastern Standard Time in late spring and summer when the clocks run one hour faster compared to late fall and winter to take advantage of the long spring and summer days. Summer draws tourists to the Green Mountains, state and national parks, mountain trails, historic sites of the state and is an ideal time for vacations - it is also the only period when weather permits to wear light clothes like sweatshirts, t-shirts, and shorts in Vermont!
