The first two thirds of June have been full of showers and storms, let's take a look at some numbers.

On 13 of the first 18 days of June rainfall was reported at the McCormick Observatory at UVa. Daily rainfall totals ranged from 0.01" to 0.99". As of June 19th, we had a June rainfall total of 4.99" at McCormick. The normal monthly precipitation total for June is 4.46", that puts us at +0.53" and we still have another week and a half left in the month. Also remember that we finish May 1.77" above normal.

Larry Patterson, a weather watcher from Madison, reported 6.23" for the month on June 18th. So even though records are kept at McCormick other locations across Central Virginia may have even more rainfall. Let us know your rainfall totals, send us an email to weather@newsplex.com and tell us where you are and how much rain you have received.
