    Northwest England regional thread 3 /3 onwards

    Really dark, haven't seen it this dark for this time since before May.

    Zero electrical activity at the moment, so I can only assume the excitement is that you are actually going to seeing rain?

    Feels like the front has passed through. Just a little bit of drizzle in the air but nothing substantial so far.
  5. Noticing it now, the twilight at 10pm is not quite the same as 10pm around the solstice. Also with the weather as it has been, can see the location where the sun sets is shifting further south now.

    Drought - Summer - 2018?

    June 2018 was the second driest June on record (since 1873) for SE England . Figures suggest that the region has only had 2mm this July, so just 4mm for the first half of summer, so truely exceptional.

    Summer 2018 - Moans, Ramps, Chat etc

    1976 301 1995 298 1983 278 2018 278 (up to 14th July) 1955 277 1911 274 1984 271 1959 269 1975 268 If the rest of summer had a mean max average of 15C, no sunshine and rain everyday then the index will end on 179 Ahead of summers 2007, 2008 and 2012 as recent examples. Some of the sunshine totals figure since the start of May up to now have been sensational. Aberdaron: 698hrs Valley: 688.5hrs
  12. About 19mm up to 13th July compare to 28.3mm up to 13th July in 1976. So I reckon it's the driest first half to summer since possibly 1925. June of that year was the driest in record and although daily reports only go back to 1931, I do know that the first half of July 1925 had well below average rainfall, with most of it falling during the second half. Without daily figures, we can't be 100% sure but it it has been exceptional
