Rain drenched the Cariboo last month.
Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Coldwells says you can say the same thing for this month as well.
“The whole month of June we ended up with 83.5 millimeters and that’s 142% of normal,” she says.
“So far to date for July we’ve seen 15 millimeters in the first eight days and last year, we’d seen only one millimeter.”
Coldwells says cooler, showery conditions are anticipated to continue for the next few weeks due to a cold low-pressure area from the Gulf of Alaska which although usually dies off in June, remains lingering.
