July 6, 2011 — So far, the month of July has been pleasant in Newfoundland, but June was a very different story. The Weather Network takes a look at the numbers.

For people in Newfoundland, the month of June was nothing to write home about.

The weather was cool most days in St. John's. The average daily High was 11.7C, which is more than 4C below normal. The city also finished the month without hitting the 20C mark once.

While parts of Newfoundland did not see record-breaking amounts of precipitation, there was still plenty of it. Rain was recorded at the St. John's airport on 27 out of the 30 days in June. There were also only four days where there was more sun than cloud in the sky for a significant period of the day.

The month of May wasn't much better. Out of the 31 days in the month, 14 brought temperatures below 10C to St. John's.

So far, the month of July has been kinder to the province. Temperatures in St. John's have been above the 20C mark most days, and there has been plenty of sunshine as well.

The city has hit the 20C mark or higher the last five consecutive days, says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. We're looking at some fair conditions over the next few days, as well.
