June 2019 Commentary

The weather for the first half of June was fairly miserable but this was followed by a rapid improvement so that by the last week, summer had well and truly arrived.

Although the first day of the month was warm, the following two or three weeks were very disappointing with day-time temperatures only in the teens until the month really started to warm up over the last ten days reaching 30C on the penultimate day.

There was also plenty of rain during the first half of June and there was talk of possible record amounts but the second half of the month was very dry apart from a heavy downpour on the 24th.

The June average temperature of 16.6C was only a degree below the average over the last decade but a good bit below the June averages over the last few years. The rainfall total of 101.3mm was well above average but didn't compare with the 2012 June total of 195.5mm.

The weekend of Open Gardens produced two quite pleasant afternoons despite the fears both mornings.
