Wettest Sites in Illinois for June

After another night of thunderstorms and 2.8 inches in my rain gauge, I wondered who in Illinois was the wettest for June. Here are the 20 wettest sites in Illinois, as of June 26, 2013.

The statewide average precipitation for June through yesterday morning was 4.03 inches. However, it does not include last night’s rain. The statewide 1981-2010 average (aka normal) for June in Illinois is 4.20 inches. By contrast, the statewide average precipitation for June 2012 was only 1.8 inches.
