Re: A wet end to December 2017

139.7 mm total for month in the end.
118% of 30-year average.

It was a wet Christmas /New Year period, 81 mm in last 6 days of Dec.
Coastal paths are a muddy quagmire in places.

A wet end to December 2017

Yesterday it passes 100 mm total for the month. Not unusual for December here. Average since 1985 is 111 mm. But the last few days to New Year are forecast to be very wet so the total is going to be well above average. Such a contrast to last December when we only had 35 mm. Max of 277 mm in 2012! W...

Are summers becoming wetter?

Looking at the last 17 years for Wembury, one would be inclined to think summers were becoming wetter.

Re: The Declining Summer of 2017

Certainly was a beautiful day here too Mick :) Sun came out at 1130 and stayed out till sunset. Max was 20.6°C. Forecast of sun was not very good. Sunny spells were only forecast for later in the afternoon. Trouble is, cloud cover is very difficult to forecast in such weak pressure gradient conditio...

Re: The Declining Summer of 2017

August has been decidedly chilly.
My absolute max to 20th is 20.5°C on 10th.

Average max to 20th is 18.8°C.
This compares with an 2001-2016 average Aug. max of 20.1°C.

There are a couple of warm days coming up, but whether they will compensate for August as a whole is doubtful.

Increasing July rainfall

While there is great variability year to year (STD of 38 mm)
The increasing linear trend in July rain here is significant.

Re: July 2017 - A warm 1st half

Even worse,
the second half mean max turned out to be 19.9°C
compared with first half mean max of 21.3°C.

My rain total for July was 99.2 mm (average 66 mm)

Still plenty of summer to come though.
