July’s total rainfall was 35.5mm, this being about 70% of the average. The rain came on isolated days or in sporadic bursts and mostly in small amounts. There were decent amounts on the 8th with 11mm, and the 7th to the 9th saw 60% of the month’s total rainfall, and again on the 18th with 8mm. The dry spells in between were not notably sunny or excessively warm but one feature was occasional days with a brisk breeze which negated any garden benefit the rain might have had. However the last two days suddenly turned very sunny, warm and humid with temperatures into the low 30s
