July 2017 - A warm 1st half

Post by Nicholas Gardner » Sun Jul 16, 2017 5:47 pm

A predominately dry (apart from one day) and warm first half of July, with slightly above average sunshine:

1st - 16th
Mean minimum = 13.2°C
Mean maximum = 23.9°C
Mean = 18.6°C
Rain = 17.4 mm
Sunshine = 120.7 hours

The only day where the temperature failed to reach >22.0°C was the 11th (the day when it rained), and so far that has also been the only sunless day.

It has also been a rather humid month with dew points frequently greater than 17°C and occasionally greater than 20°C.

Yes Len, things have turned cooler since the 16th with 3 cool days in a row (21st (17.8°C), 22nd (17.0°C) & 23rd (19.7°C) but other than that there has still been some good summer warmth with all other days >21°C and 4 days >25°C.

17th - 27th July:
Mean minimum = 12.9°C
Mean maximum = 22.5°C
Mean = 17.7°C.

So still slightly above average for the 2nd half so far.

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.

Len, in the end the 2nd half was a bit cooler than the first half but not hugely so due to quite a few warm days. Sunshine struggled though and it was rather wetter.

July 17th - 31st; (1st - 17th)
Mean minimum = 12.9°C (13.2°C)
Mean maximum = 22.0°C (23.9°C)
Mean = 17.4°C (18.6°C)
Rain = 48.8 mm (16.5 mm)
Sunshine = 86.5 hours (121.9 hours)

July 2017:
Mean minimum = 13.0°C
Mean maximum = 22.9ºC
Mean: 18.0ºC
Rain: 68.4 mm
Sunshine: 208.4 Hours
