JULY 2015 - A LITTLE COOLER, DRIER AND LESS SUNNY THAN AVERAGE.

WEATHER: Following a very hot day on the 1st, the month became gradually cooler and more unsettled. There were many rather windy days even when conditions were fine and dry.
TEMPERATURE: 0.35 °C below average monthly mean. A hot day on the 1st and generally warm until the 11th, after which no day in the month reached 25 °C. The last week was rather cool and ended with three chilly nights for high summer.
RAINFALL: 36.6 mm, 82% of average. Most of the month's rainfall fell in a short but very wet spell from the 24-26th. In mid month there were many days with drizzle or light rain, uncharacteristic for the middle of summer. There were 14 days with measurable rainfall but only 4 with 1mm or more.
SUNSHINE: c. 181 hours, rather below average. 8 days gave 10 or more hours of bright sunshine, but the 12th-17th was a very dull spell of weather. The last week of the month was also often rather cloudy.
