IRELAND’S highest rainfall total in June was recorded in County Donegal.
Rainfall totals in Ireland were above average at most of the country’s weather stations last month.
A report from Met Éireann shows that sunshine totals were below their average.
The month’s highest rainfall, a total of 170.3mm, was recorded at Finner.
“After a couple of warm, sunny days at the beginning of June, a change in the overall pattern led to low pressure dominating the rest of the month,” the report says.
“As high pressure pulled away to the west at the beginning of the first week, a northerly airflow brought weak weather fronts and showers southwards across the country.
“Thunderstorms were widespread over the four days but some places escaped, especially along the east coast.”Tags:
