Icy mornings and below average rain |Longerenong College June weather graphs

Wimmera district residents experienced some icy cold starts to the day during the month of June, according to Longerenong College weather station statistics.

The Wimmera region received a total of 14 frosts for the month of June.

Weather statistics compiled by Longerenong College’s weather recorder Brett Allender also show that on seven occasions last month the minimum temperature dropped below zero degrees.

“So, there were lots of icy mornings for the month of June,” Mr Allender said.

College statistics indicate that the average maximum temperature for June was 14.1 degrees, which Mr Allender pointed out is very close to the long-term average maximum.

The highest daily maximum temperature was recorded on June 2, with the temperature reaching 17.8 degrees.

Meanwhile, the lowest maximum temperature was recorded on June 24, with the temperature only hitting 10.7 degrees.

Mr Allender said that the rainfall total for the month of June was down a little on the long-term average.

“However, at least there was 30.8mm of rain recorded to follow up the good totals received in May,” Mr Allender said.  

From January 1 to June 30, a total of 105.0mm of rain was recorded at the college.

This compares to the long-term average, for the same six month period, of 185.1mm.

The June total rainfall fell over 17 days.

The highest daily rainfall was recorded on June 12, with the college gauges receiving 12.4mm.
