Monday was a dull cloudy day which we've become accustomed to this July. Some light rain at lunchtime put us off visiting the plot.
It’s an odd sort of summer weather and not only from the high amounts of rainfall. I've clipped some data from one of my charts for the last three days. On Saturday 14th we had just over 3 hours of sunshine and more than 8 hours of sunshine on Sunday and just 20 minutes on Monday.
At this time of year, at the height of summer, I’d expect a sunny day to produce a much higher temperature than a dull cloudy day but that’s not the case. Each day the maximum, minimum and average daily temperatures were almost the exactly the same.
Still the sunshine on Sunday was very welcome and plenty more would be appreciated although the forecast doesn’t seem that promising
