Maybe not us personally, but our gardens and reservoirs certainly need rain and there is some on the way. At this stage in July we would normally have had 44mm of rain. So far we sit at 4.4mm. That’s only 10% of our normal rainfall. July 2019 has also been a warm month with the average maximum sitting at 19.3°C. We’ve just had more cloudy days than sunny ones.
Thursday: Early showery rain clearing to a day of sunny spells and a few showers. Feeling fresher. Max 20°C
Friday: A dry start with bright spells. Cloud thickening from the south-west as a lively low pressure moves in. Showery rain arriving into the afternoon/evening. Max 19°C
Weekend: Warmer but unsettled.
Saturday: Rain clearing to sunshine and showers. Some of these beefy with a small chance of thunder and lightning. Turning a little muggy later on and feeling warmer. Max 21°C
Sunday: Bright spells with showers getting going as the day progresses. Some heavy and perhaps thundery. Max 22°C
Outlook: Low pressure out west and high pressure over Europe means we should stay settled with bright spells and just the odd shower. Wind direction is key. If we pick up a southerly or southeasterly then the potential is there for us to become hot with temperatures 25-28°C. If we maintain more of a southwesterly then not as hot, 21-24°C. All-in-all, a warm outlook.
