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.
