so did I,  I was still posting in the southeast discussion 😂😂

The midlands thread is quite large with possibly way over  100 miles between the East and the West   which makes it interesting come winter time.   Lots of nashing of teeth.  when a front does not make it all away across   or when an easterly isnt quite a potent as forecast.  Anyway welcome and have fun.

How much so far this month, Will? It must be well over 100mm by now.

64 mm so far in August here in the desert regions of the southern Peak.

Sounds like you’re describing Stoke’s summer.

And I thought it was wet here! Only just over half that  here so far, evidently the heaviest rain has been a bit further north once again.

One word for today. Filth

There's been plenty of good summer weather in the last 3 months but also plenty of rubbish. We seem to flip between the two. This week being a perfect example, Tuesday/Thursday very pleasant summer days. Wednesday/Friday absolutely vile.

Can't we just have 2 weeks of nice quiet , normal weather. 21 degrees and sunny intervals

It’s been a terrible summer. Never seen so much rain and grey skies.

Would be interested to see some stats. 

I've enjoyed plenty of nice weather , but there's definitely been some very horrible days.

Unfortunately, my weather station is broken. The Met Office did though show that June had 200% of the long term average monthly rainfall and July 150%. They also showed that by the end of July this area had already had more rain than the long term summer average, with one more month of summer to go, and August so far has got to be wetter than average.

Would that be due to intense periods (I remember that bad week in June for example)

I'd be interested in days of rain, hours of sunshine stats if available.

 No idea on sunshine amounts but there have been very few dry days. The first dry day wasn’t until 21st of June and it has rained most days this month.

i’ve had people telling me this summer hasn’t been that bad. I think they’re insane! I’d hate to see what they consider a bad summer!

Absolutely torrential rain shower just now. Soaked right through.

I don't recall 20 days with rain in June, but I am a few miles South. I'm pretty sure fathers day was dry? And the 1st (derby day)

we had about 10 minutes light rain at 10am and now it's glorious sunshine and a decent forecast.

I could cope with this every Saturday!

north west of you, but S of Matt, I don't think this summer has been bad, normal summer really especially August with the dominant W'lys, a lot of days around or even above 20 degrees max

I walk everywhere and got wet every day for the first 3 weeks of June.

We had showers first thing this morning  and then an absolutely torrential downpour around 10am. I got soaked right through.

I’ve only lived up here for 3 years and I’m more used to the drier climate of the South East but, even so, I think this summer has been awful.

Very similar day to yesterday here. We had a light shower around 11am but now some lovely spells of warm sunshine. A good summers day for getting out and about.

Aye makes a change, but can tell time of year is getting on, slight nip early and late, feels looks very much like an average early May, only wind from opposite direction

A real cloudburst here proceeded by a loud crack of thunder.
