This could turn into a record month for rain in the High Peak! - although we have not had as much as some areas of the UK, we have had nearly 100mm of rain to mid June - we had just 11mm in the whole of last June!  Sorry to say, the biggest single influence is the Jet Stream - the curveball Jet Stream currently around the UK, is giving us this wet weather - our June fine and sunny weather, is stuck out in the mid Atlantic Ocean, blocked by the Jet Stream - boats sailing across to America are reporting lovely weather out there!! it trying to get here - where it should be!

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Sunday 23 Jun - Tuesday 2 Jul
On Sunday most places will start fine, bright, and dry and remain so through much of the day, especially in northern and eastern parts. Temperatures will recover to normal or be locally warm. However, for southwestern and western parts heavy rain and some strong winds should arrive during the day as low pressure moves towards the UK from the southwest. Rain is likely to spread northward and eastwards into Monday bringing unsettled weather more widely for the start of the next week. As we head into late June there are signs that high pressure may become more dominant, bringing a chance of settled and warm weather with temperatures mostly near normal. However, by early July we may see a return to greater influence from Atlantic again, although confidence is low.
Tuesday 2 Jul - Tuesday 16 Jul
During the first half of July predictability becomes very low, with mixed signals. However, at present the favored solution is for increased Atlantic mobility through this period, bringing spells of unsettled weather to the UK, generally associated with low pressure systems, interspersed by more settled anticyclonic regimes. This will likely mean that showers or longer spells of rain will affect northwestern parts of the UK, whilst the south and southeast will see more in the way of dry weather: although some thundery outbreaks are likely in the south and southeast as is usual this time of year. Temperatures through the period will probably near or slightly above average.--
