To show variation within the month and not just the monthly total, we show the rainfall accumulated over a sliding 31-day period centered around each day.
The average sliding 31-day rainfall during June in Mehamn is increasing, starting the month at 1.5 inches, when it rarely exceeds 2.7 inches or falls below 0.4 inches, and ending the month at 2.1 inches, when it rarely exceeds 4.0 inches or falls below 0.6 inches.
Average Monthly Rainfall in June
Due to its extreme latitude, Mehamn experiences polar day (also known as the midnight Sun) during the summer and polar night during the winter. These are periods of time in which the sun is continuously above or below the horizon for more than one day. The precise start and end dates of polar day and night vary from year to year and depend on the precise location and elevation of the observer, and the local topography.
In the summer in Mehamn during 2021, the Sun is continuously above the horizon for 2.6 months, rising at 12:07 AM on May 12, and not setting again until 11:53 PM on July 31. As such, the sun is continuously above the horizon for the entire month of June.
Hours of Daylight and Twilight in June
Daylight saving time is observed in Mehamn during 2021, but it neither starts nor ends during June, so the entire month is in daylight saving time.

The figure below presents a compact representation of key lunar data for June 2021. The horizontal axis is the day, the vertical axis is the hour of the day, and the colored areas indicate when the moon is above the horizon. The vertical gray bars (new Moons) and blue bars (full Moons) indicate key Moon phases. The label associated with each bar indicates the date and time that the phase is obtained, and the companion time labels indicate the rise and set times of the Moon for the nearest time interval in which the moon is above the horizon.
Moon Rise, Set & Phases in June
We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.
The chance that a given day will be muggy in Mehamn is essentially constant during June, remaining around 0% throughout.

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.
The average hourly wind speed in Mehamn is gradually decreasing during June, decreasing from 12.3 miles per hour to 11.4 miles per hour over the course of the month.
For reference, on January 29, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 18.7 miles per hour, while on August 1, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 10.6 miles per hour.
Average Wind Speed in June
The hourly average wind direction in Mehamn throughout June is predominantly from the east, with a peak proportion of 34% on June 9.

Growing degree days are a measure of yearly heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development, and defined as the integral of warmth above a base temperature, discarding any excess above a maximum temperature. In this report, we use a base of 50°F and a cap of 86°F.
The average accumulated growing degree days in Mehamn are essentially constant during June, remaining within 16°F of 21°F throughout.

This report illustrates the typical weather in Mehamn, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.
Temperature and Dew Point
There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Mehamn.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Mehamn according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.
The estimated value at Mehamn is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Mehamn and a given station.
All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , by Jean Meeus.
All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA's MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.
Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
Elevation data comes from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) , published by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series. While having the tremendous advantages of temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have model-based errors, (2) are coarsely sampled on a 50 km grid and are therefore unable to reconstruct the local variations of many microclimates, and (3) have particular difficulty with the weather in some coastal areas, especially small islands.
We further caution that our travel scores are only as good as the data that underpin them, that weather conditions at any given location and time are unpredictable and variable, and that the definition of the scores reflects a particular set of preferences that may not agree with those of any particular reader.
