Last Months Report

July was another dry month with temperatures being above average. The month will be remembered for the short severe record breaking heatwave from the 16th to the 20th. July started fairly mundane with average temperatures from the 1st to the 6th. The coldest night occurred in this period with 10.4C being recorded on the 3rd just pipping the previous two days. Temperatures started rising from the 7th with the first short heatwave from the 9th to the 12th with temperatures peaking at 29.6C on the 11th. Normally this would be enough for the highest temperatures of the month however it was the third warmest day of the month. Around this time the models were showing extreme heat in the UK which I didn't believe at time as models do tend to throw up unrealistic outcomes at long range. The temperatures returned to average from the 13th to the 15th. The models briefly dropped the extreme heat keeping it to the south of the UK before resurrecting the idea pretty quickly. Sheffield weather picked up and ran with the extreme heat idea while the Met office kept fairly quiet before issuing the first extreme warning a few days later. An extreme red warning was issued soon after. However companies had little idea what extreme heat felt like and generally failed to consider the risks. The second heat wave started on the 16th when temperatures hit 26.1C. The 17th recorded the fourth hottest day as 29.5C was reached. I then was watching to see if the record for Sheffield weather would be beaten and it was with 35.7C being reached on the 18th. Beating the previous record by 0.5C. Tropical nights followed on the 19th and 20th as night time temperatures fell to a hot 21.1X C and 21.7C respectively. The question now would the new record been beaten and would 40C be reached. A temperature inversion in the early hours helped towards this as temperatures rose back to 25.8C by sunrise. This also caught people trying to cool the house by opening the windows myself included so I woke to a house with 25 degrees of heat rather than 20C. Early cloud cleared and the sun got to work and the old record was swiftly beaten by lunchtime the question now was how high it would go the answer was 38.8C by mid afternoon. Soon after cooler air arrived with temperatures falling to a cool 30.9C by the evenings end. The cooler air was still warm enough for 25C to be reached on the 20th as the heatwave ended. Soon after the coldest day of the month was recorded as temperatures rose to just 16.9C a difference of 22.9C. Average to warm conditions soon returned from the 23rd to the 31st with temperatures staying in the low twenties while night time temperatures stayed in double figures. Night time temperatures were actually 1.7C above normal while the day time temperatures were 1.5C above normal. The dry weather of June continued through into July. The month was the 7th driest July on record with just 2x.x rain falling. The period from the 1st to the 20th just saw 0.2mm of rain falling. In this period just five days had rain that was too small to measure a trace condition. The rest of the days were dry. 1.6mm of rain fell on the 21st which wasn't forecast while heavy rain for 22nd didn't turn up with just 3.8mm falling. In the evening the radar showed rain falling but the sky had broken cloud and no sign of any rain one of those false radar readings that happen ever so often. After the 20th the majority of the months rain fell with rain falling on every day albeit the amounts being small. The highest amount fell on the 30th with just 5mm. The wet end to the month was poorly modelled with empthis on dry weather changing to damp at very short notice. The time of year really means there won't be much in the way of windy weather. However the wind did gust in to thirties with peak gusts of 37mph on the 25th and 34mph on the 24th. Thunderstorms were absent again although a few were forecast despite conditions being totally unsuitable for storm development. August will start with averages temperatures and a humid feel to procedures. it's likely to see the first major rainfall in the region for a while. The first 7 days sees a brief cool down as high pressure sits to far to the west of the UK allowing cooler air to move south east with some chilly nights to come. The spell is brief as by the first weekend the high is edging allowing very warm dry conditions to develop once more. The high moves over the country by the 2nd week with very warm to hot weather developing across the UK. The high pressure edges to the north east allowing easterly winds to develop and this could mean low cloud becoming an issue in the mornings with the heat confined the to the afternoon but still very warm to hot. The very warm to hot weather looks set to last into the middle of the month. At the time of typing the long range forecast isn't available so will need to update later in the month when it becomes available again. Some people will be wondering if we will see extreme heat again. The very hot air isn't far from the UK so only a slight change in the position of the high could again subject the UK to extreme heat once again.
