262.6 mm in an August between 1970 and 1990 (it doesn't state what year unfortunately). It's nothing special, but the amount gets much higher the closer to the Dinaric Alps you go, for example Rijeka's record is 526.7 mm (October), Ogulin's is 458.1 mm (October), Parg's is 579.6 mm (October) and Zavižan's is 672.8 mm (October).

173 mm in August 1960 for Norrköping, which is the nearest station with similar climatic conditions as this place. Kind of meagre of a record, especially since that month was a freak accident. Normally it never goes above 100 mm in any month except once per decade maybe.

Wow, for some reason I thought your wettest month would be a lot more than that.
