Weather and season

JULY: The early part of July was hot leading to a successful Wimbledon tennis championship without any delays due to rain. However, overall, July proved to be a very wet month, it being the wettest July on record for England and Wales but the mean temperature was close to the 1971-2000 average across the UK.
AUGUST: Rainfall was above normal for the UK as a whole (133%). It was generally a dull month with much cloud. It was a very disappointing “summer” month. Not a good barbecue month as predicted by the Met Office earlier in the year. The remnants of hurricane “Bill” brought rain and wind to western and northern areas on the 25th and 26th.
SEPTEMBER: September was the summer we never had – an Indian summer you might say. The rainfall for the month was 40% below and sunshine 9% above the monthly average. Locally the daytime temperatures reached the mid to late teens most days, with the highest temperature of 22ºC being recorded on the 8th. The reservoir level dropped a little to reveal the top of the Large Island.
