JUNE 2017 - WARMER AND WETTER THAN AVERAGE.
WEATHER: After a fine start, much of the beginning of the month was unsettled and windy. This was followed by a fortnight of warm, and briefly very hot weather before the end of the month turned cooler and unsettled once more.
TEMPERATURE: Mean 2.3 °C above average. The first 9 days of June were close to average, but the 10th to 26th were very warm with 4 consecutive days reaching 30 °C in mid-month. A new site record high temperature for June of 33.1 °C was recorded on the 21st. Both days and nights were warmer than the site long term average EUR-GBP.
RAINFALL: 71.2 mm, 160% of site average. Although the month's rainfall was high against the long term average, this was largely due to 2 distinct high rainfall events; on the 5th/6th and 26/27th which accounted for more than 3/4 of June's total. In between there was no rainfall recorded from the 10th to 21st inclusive. Thunder was heard in the vicinity on two days but no hail observed.
SUNSHINE: 212.9 hours, a little above average. There was a very sunny period of weather from the 13th to 21st inclusive, but the end of the month was rather dull.
