Last month, Lansing officially got .59 inches of rain. That's right - a little more than half an inch of rain for the whole month. That's less than any other city measured in Michigan. According to, this was the third driest June on record in Lansing and ALMOST three inches under our normal level.

But your lawn or cornfield could've told you that.

On the other hand, Ann Arbor got just about a normal amount of rain, 3.66 inches. And the western Upper Peninsula was actually wetter than normal in June. Flint had it's second driest June ever, but we still had less. Nice, huh?

Here's the story, with rainfall totals from around the state.
