Windiest July Day?

Hot on the heels of Friday producing the highest rainfall intensity of this year Saturday decided to be the windiest July day I've recorded. The average wind speed for the day was 3.7mph and whilst this doesn't sound very high there has only been four other occasions in July with daily average wind speeds in excess of 3.0mph. They are listed in the table below.
Maximum Average Wind Speeds July 2010 - July 2016
Summer 2012 wasn't very good and this summer is having a good attempt to be worse but at the moment isn't quite managing it.
Hopefully the wind won't have done too much damage on the plot.


  1. It seems the speed is increasing by year!

    1. The winds have died down now and the weather isn't too bad. Summer might be here!
