June 2011

June 2011 turned out a bit wetter than average (the first month to be wetter than average since January). Although wetter, the evaporation is high at this time of year, so as the last three months were so dry conditions are still on the dry side, but it is nice to see green grass again.
The rainfall total was 64.0mm for June and with 11.4mm falling on the 12th and 11.2mm in the thunderstorms on the 27th contributing to the total, the total so far this year is 178.1mm.

The max temperature so far this year was 31.9c on the 27th June (this is the hottest day since July 2006), and the 27th also saw the warmest night so far.
