July in the UK has been the driest in nearly a decade although it parallels last year for warmth and sunshine hours. Wind flow direction was predominantly a weak north-easterly over most of England and Wales. In the South-East especially, the mid to end of the month has been a prolonged spell of high temperatures – my London daily recordings ranged between 79-82 F. Intermittent thunderstorms have been ‘hit and miss’ with some areas having heavy downpours whilst nearby places remained dry. Night time temperatures have been kept warm, too often under blankets of cloud!
We are promised heavy rain tomorrow – will it reach London, I wonder.
