Here are the weather stats for July, these readings are local to my garden and are not Met Office approved or anything like that.
Maximum Temperature 35 C (95 F)
Minimum Temperature 8 C (46 F)
Number of continuous days without rain for this month is 3 days on one occasion between the 23rd and 25th. The most rain to fall in a 24 hour period was 34 mm (1.33 inches)
The total rainfall for the month was 156mm (6.14 inches)
This has been a very disappointing month as far as gardening goes with many plants looking worse for wear. With only 8 dry days out of 31 you have to say it’s been a wet and gloomy month with little leisure time being able to be spent in the garden.
