UCKINGTON & ELMSTONE HARDWICKE
David looked at his rain gauge on 13 occasions in June to find a total of 137mm for the month.
Surprisingly it was an identical amount to 2012 with the same number of rainy days as this year.
This brings the total this year to 335mm which reflects earlier drier than usual months.
Night temperatures for the month too were lower than usual for June, excepting for 2015 when the average night temperature was 8.53°C compared to 9.17°C this year.
