June was warmer and wetter than average and the spring season in Scotland was the second-warmest ever.
The summer of 2006 was unusually warm, and thanks to an exceptional autumn, the year as a whole broke all records.

Last month was the warmest April in the UK on record, with virtually no rain in some areas, the Met Office said.
The average temperature was 10.2C (50.4F), beating the previous April high of 9.2C (48.6F), recorded in 1943.
Rainfall in the driest region, East Anglia, was only 5% of the expected amount, and even in the wettest parts of Scotland it was down 30%.
