June 2016 has been the wettest ever June in the southern provinces of Limburg and Noord-Brabant, broadcaster NOS said on Wednesday.

The KNMI has so far issued four code orange weather warnings for the two provinces and rainfall is three times the average of between 60 and 70 mm over the month, NOS said.

Despite the heavy showers in the rest of the country, rainfall is not above average nationwide. And with an average temperature of almost 17 degrees, it has also been warmer than the average June.

The warmest day of the month was June 23, when it reached as high as 32 degrees in the south, but quickly cooled off in the ensuing storms.

Long term forecasts predict little change in the current weather and it will remain cool with rain and sunny spells into early July, the KNMI and Weerplaza said.
