The 33.4mm of rain that fell in Echuca at the weekend brought the monthly total to 81mm, nearly doubling the June average.
Most (15mm) fell in the 24 hours until 9am Friday, while Saturday recorded 11.2mm and Sunday 7.2mm.
Bureau of Meteorology Victorian climatologist Kevin Smith said Echuca was reaching record levels, with the highest June rainfall for the district recorded at 102.6mm in 1910.
‘‘You’re in the top 10 per cent of record levels,’’ Mr Smith said.
‘‘You have certainly had plenty of rain and copped some thunderstorms.’’
Echuca is faring better than surrounding towns, with Rochester recording 66.4mm for the month and Kyabram 53mm.
Echuca’s wettest month this year was April, with 91.3mm of rain, bringing the year-to-date rainfall for the district to 269.4mm.
Mr Smith said although conditions were starting to cool down, temperatures were still expected to be warmer than average and there was a 70 per cent chance of an El Nino developing.
