Seasonal Report

Summer 2021

Sheffield experienced a dry average summer despite producing only one period of sustained hot weather. Other parts of the country were average and wet while the rain generally apart from in July just didn't turn up. Despite only 69% of rain falling it failed to make the top ten of driest summers on record. A new record was created though and summer 2021 had the warmest nights on record. June started very warm to hot on the first two days before temperatures eased back to the low twenties and provided a long period of pleasant summery weather warm but not too hot. The temperatures produced one more hot day on the 16th when 26C was reached. After the temperatures had dropped by nearly ten degrees by the 18thmarking a cold 2nd half of the month but not cold enough to cancel out the first half. Temperatures did reach 20 plus on the 23rd,24th and 29th but the 24th was followed by a very cold day when only 13C was recorded. June also managed to record eight days in single figures the coldest night on the 1st when 7.9C was the low. This day produced an impressive 16.6C degree difference between the high and low this was nearly matched on the 16th when a 15.1C was the daily range. The last last seven days were generally dogged by north sea cloud. So despite the cool 2nd half the month and a lack of a sustained hot spell June still ended up being 1.4C degrees above normal. Rainfall or lack of it was the other feature of June. The wettest day was the 18th when 6 mm fell which was the wettest day of the month. The period between the 7th and 15th produced no rainfall and the month managed to make the top ten driest on record. The month didn't see any Thundery activity at all which wasn't very surprising considering the recent lack of storms with last year being the exception to the trend. Wind wise the month was quiet which is expected for a summer month. July was a warm wet month which produced the only long hot spell of the summer. The month started with temperatures returning to the more ideal low twenties temperatures and the coldest nights were on the 1st and 2nd when the mercury dropped to 8.9C and 9.9C respectively. After that the overnight temperatures were in the low to mid teens. After a pleasant first half of the month the heatwave started on the 16th and lasted until the 22nd. Temperatures of 30C, the hottest day and 29.1C, 29.4C and 29.3C were recorded on the 17th,18th,20th and 22nd. Night times were warm as well with 17C degrees on the 21st 16.6C on the 20th and 16.4C on the 22nd. The heatwave came to an abrupt halt on the 23rd when temperatures dropped by ten degrees as North sea cloud failed to clear quickly. July managed to produce another hot day on the 26th as 25.7C was reached. However the month was generally cool from the 23rd. Despite this it was the joint 5th warmest on record. Most of the months rain fell between 3rd to the 5th when 10.9mm,12.9mm and 11.4mm fell. The rainfall tap was turned to low from the 7th and there were 13 days without any measurable rain from the 14th to the 26th. The last five days pushed the month above average when close to 20mm fell in this period. A total of 74.5mm was recorded. June produced one weak Thunderstorm on the 4th and thundery showers on the 3rd,7th and 28th. Thunder was also heard on the 20th and 22nd. August was an average month temperature wise and dry meaning a dry summer overall. The 21st produced a dreadful forecast and warning for heavy rain and Thunderstorms. Needless to say these didn't materialise and only 2.2mm of rain fell. Even today with modern technology we still get forecasting fails some of this is due to a slowness in updating forecasts and warnings which in today's climate isn't acceptable. The month also saw Carol Kirkwood produce a baffling forecast which clearly was from a few days earlier. Again for storms and heavy showers however none of the modelling and other forecasts predicted this and hadn't suggested anything that nature the evening before. I don't know whether it was corrected later in the show but it was eh? you what time when I heard it. The month as a whole was uneventful apart from the those forecasts. Temperature wise August was average. Very little in the way of temperature variation across the month. This is fairly well demonstrated by a high of 23C on the 4th and a low of 15.7C on the 27th. Night time did see single figures from the 2nd to the 4th when 8.5C was the coldest night. After that the temperatures remained in double figures with 15.1C being the warmest night. The month saw a return to low twenties upper teens from the 23rd. The month was also fairly cloudy which helped it towards the dreary summery. Overall a disappointing end to the summer. The mild nights did however mean we made the warmest nights on record for summer which was unexpected. Rainfall wise very little rainfall fell with only 29.8mm falling by the months end. The wettest day was the 8th when 8.1mm fell. The next highest being 4.1mm on the 5th and 7th. 8 days produced only 0.8mm between the 11th and the 18th. Another mostly dry spell started from the 23rd until the 31st. This period adding only 0.3mm of rain to the months total. The month only just failed to get in the top ten driest on record. Despite August being a nothing sort of month summer was a dry one overall with average temperatures. Produced a threat of some Thundery weather which is a welcome change from the recent trend of no Thunderstorms. If August hadn't been such an dreary uneventful month summer may have been much more memorable.
