Re: Asperatus?

August and Summer rain in Wembury

Average rainfall in August 2016, but 40 mm fell in two days at the beginning of the month.
Summer(JJA) rainfall was also near average.
The graph does however hint at increasing rainfall in the timespan 2001 to 2016.

Re: July 2016 - Warm, muggy and dry so far

This is true Nick. This is typical of the temperature profile when I do that journey during the late Spring through to early Autumn.

Re: July 2016 - Warm, muggy and dry so far

Warm Nick?
Certainly not here a bit west of you on SW Devon coast.
So far for July to 13th:
Mean max 18.9°C (30 yr July average 19.9°C)
Mean min 12.7°C (30 yr July average 13.3°C)

Dryish though with only 15.4 mm so far.
