June Rain Compared to the Average

From our short-term records (only going back to 2006), the average rainfall for June is 38.4mm.

By the 5th of June, we’d just passed the monthly average.

By the 11th of June, we’d had twice the monthly average.

By the 15th of June, we’d had three times the monthly average.

At the time of writing we’ve had 130mm of rain and are expecting heavy overnight rain.

Update 1pm, 24th June: We’ve had another 16mm of rain overnight and this morning bringing the monthly total to 146mm.

Four times the monthly average (153.6mm) seems quite reachable at this time. Especially as Wimbledon is imminent.
