June is the wettest month of the year, which means measuring how much fell can be important for farmers who want to know how much moisture their crops have.

Over the past couple of years, rainfalls have been well below average, putting farmers into tough positions.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Terri Lang says that this year is better though still below average.

"66.1 millimeters compared to a 30-year average of 74.8 milliliters, so about 88 per cent of average rainfall and 44th driest in 112 years of record."

If people think it's felt rainier, Lang says that's because we've had such dry previous Junes that this one feels wetter.

"The last couple of years were quite dry. So you know, even though the southernmost tier of the province was a little bit drier compared to more central areas, I think it's a lot wetter to people just because the last few years have been dry, but as we can see, compared to the stats, it was actually below normal."

Besides the lack of sunshine, a lack of warmth has also had people feeling like this was a very un-summer-like June.

"The whole province was sort of on the cool side, so that of course goes against our forecast that June was going to be above average. So the average temperature for the month was 14.8 compared to a 30-year average of 16.5 to about 1.7° below average and that made it the 21st coldest in 117 years."
