It was a wet start to summer in Greater Moncton with 18 out of 30 days in June reporting at least a trace of precipitation.

Most of the rain fell during three major events, 08-09 during the remnants of Post Tropical Storm Andrea, on the 12th and the 28-29 which proved to be a real soaker from the Eastern Seaboard.

For the most part, daytime highs were either well above or well below normal and overnight lows proved to be cool especially during the first half of the month.
