Wettest July on record – Also wettest May on record airport.
Almost 250 millimetres (9.84 inches) of rain fell at the Ottawa airport — the most since they started recording the weather there in 1938.
The average rainfall for July is 89 millimetres.
In addition to being the wettest July, it was also one of the coolest in recent memory.

With more rain yet to come, Ottawa also endured record rainfall for the month of May. As of May 30, the city had already surpassed the 164 millimetres that fell in May 1986 to set a new record, and more than doubled the May average of 83 millimetres.
