Record rainfall and flooding around the world marked this month, but some rare snow events should be highlighted:

Some parts of Jasper, Alberta, received more than 4 inches of rain and more than 20 inches of snow during the week of the summer solstice. In Jasper National Park, two roads were closed and 60 visitors were rescued after becoming stranded. In western Canada, many ski resorts were blanketed with unusually heavy snow for June.

The same system dropped 6 inches of snow at Tamarack Resort, Idaho, and Beaver Creek Resort, Colorado. America's Mountain was also hit by a sudden blizzard that dumped a record amount of snow for June, bringing all traffic in the area to a halt as visibility dropped to zero in a matter of minutes.

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, the country's largest agricultural region braced for a surprise wave of snow and ice that caused lasting damage to crops and livestock. Torrential rains also caused flooding in the same area, leading to road closures and air evacuations.

Other important flood events this month:
  • Southern Brazil: Record flooding for June - 13 deaths, 5,000 homes damaged, and 84,000 people without power.
  • Japan: Tropical Storm Mawar unleashed the heaviest 24-hour rainfall on record - thousands evacuated and 4,000 homes without power.
