16.0 mm at the airport brings the June total to 26.0 mm so far, which if we somehow managed to escape rainfall in the next 9 days, would be a 7th driest June... but like we saw yesterday, it only takes 1 thunderstorm to dump nearly a month's worth of rain. With multiple shower and thunderstorm chances in the next few days, we will most likely be adding some to that monthly total.
Lighter amounts in south Winnipeg brings the monthly total only up to 15.4 mm at my place so far... so it's actually been quite a dry June in some areas so far. This could possibly be attributed to the slow start in the thunderstorm season this year thanks to a late spring. Things are only starting to heat up right now when it comes to thunderstorm activity with a peak expected to be a few weeks later than usual this summer.
