Northern Ireland was the wettest region of the UK in July with 128mm of rain, according to Met Office figures.
Met Eireann reported that: The weather of July 2017 was changeable and unstable. The month was characterized by a westerly airflow, which steered frontal rain bands across the country bringing occasionally wet and windy conditions, with showery weather in between.
There were transient ridges of high pressure which brought a number of fine, warm days, but there were no settled spells. Locally heavy falls of rain occurred during thunderstorms, especially in the second half of the month.
Shannon Airport had its wettest July since 1946 when more than double the average rain fell at the County Clare site.
However, it was also the sunniest July in Northern Ireland since 2013 with 170.5 hours of sunshine, or 21% more than normal.
