July 2019 Commentary

July in Cerne Abbas was a lovely summer month. Day-time temperatures were warm to hot throughout the month, while night-time temperatures were never too unpleasant. The first half of the month was almost totally dry while there was only four days with substantial amounts of rainfall during the second half.

High pressure dominated for most of July but we were really only on the edge of the major system that presided over north-western Europe.

The average temperature for the month was 20.2C which is over a degree above the average for the last decade but also a degree below the figure for July 2018.

The rainfall total of 44mm, not even two inches, was only just above half the July average over the last decade. Rainfall totals for the summer months can however be very variable.

Some locals were heard to complain about having to water their garden on a regular basis but otherwise July was a delightful month for staying in West Dorset.
