Even though it isn't the end of the month yet but I thought I'd create a thread where everyone can put their month's rainfall in. Others feel free to join in, not too sure if this will take off or not.

Welcome , you two from Down Under. (Do you use that term to describe yourselves? No, right?)

Rain for Long Island New York ~~ so far less than 2 inches. It has been terribly dry and already the lawns and thatched and yellowed.

This month we have seen 1.99" of rain in the Ludington, Michigan area. Last month we saw a touch more, with one storm dumping 12" in 6 hours. Historic rainstorm swamps northern Michigan - Latest News - The Grand Rapids Press - MLive.com

This has been just about right for growing.

61mm so far this July. (that's 2.4" in old money)

A lot wetter than average, but not as much as last year. Average is 1.7" for the whole month!

Here's a huge surprise: Phoenix (at the official Sky Harbor Int'l location) has received 2.15 inches of rain so far in July ... which is well above the average. This year's monsoon has been heavier than usual, but the crazy thing is that some parts of the Phoenix metro area haven't received a drop of rain all month!

Our wettest month on average (March) received no rain at all this year. That's the first time in 24 years that no rain has fallen in the month of March. The good thing is that the rains we received in December and January made up for the lack of rain in the late winter/early spring.
