I think the past 4 days in particular has put the tin hat on this June for many people. First half of July not exactly looking great either but hopefully it won't be as chilly or as wet as the past 4 days have been. Certainly for northwestern areas this has now been a deluge June with many eastern and southern areas also having a wetter than average June.

Same story here, bar a couple of very windy/borderline stormy days early in the month it was at least passable up until this week. I'll mainly remember this month for the incessant cold wind and lack of sunshine than the rain I think

Pretty much echo DS's and Pauldry's view of this June, warm and very dry for most of it, but unlike them, not much in the way of rain here at all bar one day and anything that did fall was light, despite numerous days with actual thunder. Odd month all round.

A further 9 mm today near Westport, and yes it's still raining, making it three days of almost incessant rain here.

Surprised to see that both Cork Apt and Roches Pt are running well below their LTA regarding rainfall totals for the first week of July this year with just 5.8mm (32%) at the Apt and 4.0mm (28%) at the Point. The National average for the same period is running at 30.6mm (186%).
