Average temperatures for June and the first dry month of the year
Nothing too spectacular about the temperature in June, a few hot days at the beginning and a few cool days after that made for overall temperature that was just 0.3 degrees warmer than what we would expect putting it within the average range.
For the first time this year it was a drier than average month. Although it wasn’t drier by much as we had 60.4 mm and the average range starts at 64 mm. There was only one really wet day of the month, the 22nd when 28.2 mm fell, and there was a dry stretch from the 9th to the 20th.
Even with the relatively dry month, we still had 602.0 mm for the first half of the year which is well above the average of 415.0 mm. This is the second wettest first half of the year in the area since records began back in 1914. Only in 1947 was it wetter when 624.8 mm was recorded from January to June.
