EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) - Finally a rain free day around Western Massachusetts on Wednesday, but what a wet month we've had.
Turns out it's not just been very wet, but almost record breaking.
In Easthampton on Wednesday, people seemed to be enjoying walking to the shops and restaurants without needing the umbrella this time. It was a dry day after a soggy month that's only two thirds of the way through.
So far this month we've had almost 8 inches of rain which is more than twice as wet as a normal June.
Storm after storm means we're closing in on the June rainfall record of just over 10 inches which fell back in June 1982.
Bill McAuliffe of Easthampton told 22News, "We've gotten too much moisture, way too much moisture and this is supposed to be spring coming into summer and it seems more into the fall."
To put our rain into perspective, we've already had more rainfall than we did when tropical storm Irene flooded parts of Western Massachusetts two years ago.
