We are pretty much ALL tired of the rainy weather at this point. We have had measurable rain (more than a “trace”) 13 out of 21 days this month. A handful of rainfall totals:

Warren 7.78″
Howland 7.31″
N Wilmington 5.63″
Boardman 6.13″
Airport 5.57″

The reason for the wet June? It can mostly be blamed on a persistent ridge of high pressure over the Southeast. This atmospheric traffic cop has deflected a large chunk of the moisture coming out of the Gulf of Mexico into the southern Plains, the Mississippi Valley and the lower Great Lakes/Ohio Valley.
