July 2006


Note
A total hosepipe and sprinkler ban is in effect in South East Water & Mid Kent Water supply areas until further notice.
1st - 7th
High pressure dominates, but a rather dull and cool if dry start to June. A warm front band lingers over eastern England on the 2nd, only clearing away slowly late evening. The anticyclone to the west of the UK really starts to work its influence on the 3rd, with unbroken sunshine and temperatures rising well above average. Continuing dry and settled with long sunny periods.
8th - 12th
High pressure now in the North Sea, bringing very warm air from the continent. Virtually unbroken sunshine with a slight haze. The first 10 days of the month were outstandingly sunny in the west of the UK and Ireland. The HP slips away slowly eastwards, allowing slightly more humid air to track in from the SW on the 11th.
13th - 18th
A slow moving cold front brings an end to the hot spell during the 13th with rain and dull conditions. The cloud breaks only at the very end of the day on the 14th. A weak ridge from the Azores high and continental highs bring more warm weather but rather more cloudy than before.
19th - 24th
Westerlies bring a cooler and rather windy spell, but remaining dry with periods of sunshine. Becoming warmer again briefly but high cloud on the 25th broke only for a few moments near sunset.
26th - 27th
The 26th was a very dull and cool day with three spells of rain; the longest and wettest in early morning, and the other two in the early afternoon. The 27th was a little brighter with the UK under weak high pressure but mostly overcast again.

‡ SUNSHINE: Sunshine hours are calculated approximately and solely from solar radiation readings, but note that the solar sensor's exposure to sunshine is rather limited. The sensor receives only 60% of total possible sunshine exposure this month, and there is no allowance for sunshine by visual observation only, so the figures above can be very significantly less than the actual daily sunshine duration.
THW = Shaded Heat Index calculated with cooling/warming effect of wind and humidity to give an apparent temperature.
THSW = Unshaded Heat Index calculated with cooling/warming effect of wind, humidity and full direct sunshine to give an apparent temperature.
EVAPO-TRANSPIRATION is drying effect due to sun and wind, and is equivalent to "negative rainfall"

'WIND ROSE' PLOT FOR THE MONTH
Wind Rose June 2006
The 'petals' represent wind direction and the length represents frequency, i.e. in this case winds from the SSW were the most common, followed by the ESE then SE and NNW.

The colours represent the strength of the wind, with black being weakest through blue then lighter colours (cyan, light green, yellow, magenta, red) being stronger.

This data excludes 'calm' readings.
