    It's been a rotten three days. Dire stuff. So dark every day! The only flipside is that it's a working weekday for me and hopefully the weekend is better

    Assessing today depends on whether you think in absolute or relative terms.

    In absolute terms, a max of 17.7 °C and a fairly brisk NW'ly do not make a great July day. The outlook, with temps hovering around 20 °C and no sign of a really nice warm, sunny spell is also uninspiring in overall terms.

    In relative terms, it's been an enormous improvement on yesterday. Plenty of sunshine, no rain and even the wind has now finally dropped. I'd have bitten your hand off for this a day ago! It's been good walking weather, too, especially as the wind and sun together have dried up any mud and puddles very nicely.

    Promising start now given way to 100% cloud cover. Yesterday was a very minor blip, in that it had any sunshine. Other than that, 2 weeks of "high summer", lost to leaden skies and cool winds. Fed up of it!

    I think we got a bit lucky in Worcs, reading the last two posts. A decent amount of sunshine (though it did cloud over fully for a bit in the early afternoon) and 19.6 °C feeling okay. Still not a great July day, but a very acceptable walking day. I was wearing a fairly thin T-shirt and never felt at all cold.

    I was walking in Cannock Chase and it was largely sunny but didn't feel overly warm which is fine when tackling 15 miles. Not a drop of rain either and most paths have dried up well after the poor week. Today was great too, warmer and sunny all day.

    Yes, a brief respite today, and then back to what appears to be mostly dull & after tomorrow, chilly weather until the end of the week.

    Sunday was the first truly summery day here for quite some while. 22.4 °C, lots of sunshine, gentle breeze. Clouded over in the evening, but still good enough to sit in the garden with a book for an hour.

    Right, that was summer, was it? 😛

    What a contrast. Far, far more rain than forecast, and it seemed to be coming down every time I poked my head out of the door. Got one hurried walk in during the morning and that was it. Rain, rain, rain. Not especially cold (19.7 °C) but yet another poor day for the time of year. Next couple of days also look uninspiring, though maybe some minor warmth as we head towards the weekend. Will believe it when I see it as ever!

    Tommorow (Friday) looks the best day for outdoor activity and warmth if you can call it that, but i'm wondering wether that will be a cloudfest the way the ridge of high pressure is positioned, saturday really looks a write of for the midlands, a front stuck right through the middle of England then gets pepped up from the west to round the day off on a soggy end..enough to make you turn to drink!!...tomorrow hopefully🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺.

    Not good for the Midlands saturday.

    A vaguely decent day today (Thursday) although not exactly memorable. Decently warm for once (22.4 °C with light winds) and even a bit of sunshine here and there. Turned cloudy and gloomy in the afternoon, but the cloud cleared reasonably well by evening. A nice Friday coming up as mentioned above, then dross on Saturday. Currently looks acceptable but unthrilling thereafter.

    The front is slowly moving down the country, might squeeze a nice day out here in the North Midlands before we lose the sunshine later on, South of Birmingham should be ok, feel sorry for those in the North.

    A fairly pleasant day here. On the cool side (just scraped over 20 °C) but a fair amount of sunshine, no rain once the overnight stuff had cleared in the early hours, and the wind only mildly nagging. Hardly a classic summer's day, and definitely not a match for the first half of Friday, but by recent standards this was a good 'un.

    After the second warmest day of the month yesterday ( 21.6c max) last night was the warmest for a month, and the warmest this month, with a min' of 14.6c. A look at the latest model output suggests that the warmest night this July could occur at the very end of the month.

    A good summer's day in the end here, though the cloud took its sweet time breaking up. From about early afternoon it's been lovely, though. Topped out at 26.0 °C but feels very comfortable with the breeze. Currently almost unbroken sunshine. Tomorrow looks a bit too hot and humid for my liking, even if we do get away without any rain. Then summer ends again. 😛

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
