July 2020 climate summary

Courtesy to the UKMO for the anomaly charts and gridded data

July 2020 was a generally cool, cloudy and rather wet affair across many central and western parts of the UK. Temperatures were closer to average across the southeast as was sunshine, although rainfall again was below average. Mean July temperatures across the UK, as in the CET series, were the lowest since 2012. Finally I would like to say that the Met Office have exceeded themselves with regard to the speed in which they put their monthly climate data together, at one time you could be waiting five days or so before it was published.
The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that the anomalies I overlay on the anomaly maps are from 1981-2010, whilst the coloured contours in the map are displaying anomalies for the 1961-1990 period. That’s another program I’ll have to fix, life is all go for a xmetman.
