After a warmer than average May in Southeast New Brunswick, hopes were high that June would follow suit but that was not the case.

Environment Canada reports the average monthly temperature was 1.5 C below normal in Greater Moncton with precipitation about 50 percent higher than usual.

Overnight lows were generally cool throughout the month and the maximum temperature barely climbed to 27 C.

Heavy rainfall from post-tropical storm Bill in the last third of the month caused flooding in the low lying areas of Sackville and Amherst.
