Monthly Weather Summary

JULY  -   cool and unsettled - an unremarkable month that bore little resemblance to summer. Often cool with only a few days attaining the seasonal average. Whilst my 14 yrs of records show it to be drier than average, 30yr long term records show a much wetter than average month. The final two days of the month saw a sudden explosion in warmth with the 31st becoming the equal third warmest in my records.

Driest since 2018 and the sixth driest of 14 - coldest since 2012, the third coldest of twelve - MSLP was -0.5 Mb below average, rainfall 85.5% of the average for 2007-19 and the temp' was 1.12°c below average (2009-19).

Rainfall totalled 87.5 mm    -  Mean Min' of 10.01°c  -  Mean Max' 17.89°c  -  with a highest maximum of 29.5°c (31st) and a lowest minimum of 5.7°c (20th).

There were no 'days of' at all during the month - with 12.5 mm the 26th was the month's wettest day and the highest gust of wind was 42 Mph - it was the windiest July yet recorded here.

  Summary   - is now updated with the full weather report for July.
