The statistics from this local weather station are currently being uploaded to ‘Weather Underground’, a commercial world-wide weather service providing real time weather information for almost anywhere!
The data from any weather station will reflect its own topography, altitude and local environment. Figures will vary somewhat from other reporting weather stations even close by. Typically each station locality possesses its own micro-climate. Over a year (or even longer) these variations are ironed out somewhat and a picture of the local climate emerges.

MONTHLY SUMMARY NOTES OF WEATHER OBSERVATIONS IN ANSTY
June weather: average rainfall; above average temperatures; plenty of sunshine and humid.
Fine weather at the end of May ran on into the first week of June with some noticeable warm days, with winds mostly from a westerly or south westerly direction steered on the back of weak ridges of high pressure emanating from the Azores. Some mornings were often cool with heavy dews – but the days warmed up quite quickly.
The 2nd week saw the Azores anticyclone steer even warmer and more humid sub-tropical maritime air with temperatures well into the 20s – peaking at 27.1 C on the 14th.
This fine weather lasted until 18th and no rain had fallen since May 25th – so officially we were in a drought situation! Indeed, many afternoons registered low humidity reading for a short time.
From the 18th the high pressure partially collapsed, and fronts migrated in pulling in much cooler air and showery rain. Shallow depressions from the south and southwest often with wave fronts brought in this cool regime. The 19th was particularly cool with a low temperature of 14.2 C. Showery rain persisted until the 25th before it became drier with warm sunny spells.
A notable wet spell overnight on the 27th into the 28th brought in by another wave front up from the south clocked up over an inch of rainfall which brought the monthly total up to the average for the month.
It was not quite a ‘flaming June’ but it was a sunny one with 20 days of sunshine and 9 days when rain fell. It was yet another month that scored above the monthly average by 1.6 centigrade degrees to add to all the others.
There cannot be anybody out there that does not recognise that our climate is warming, and the evidence is all around us from the way all vegetation is growing faster and thicker and plant behaviour is also changing. This is already having an adverse knock-on effect with the wildlife and of course us humans – though we are all still wrestling with how we might change our lifestyle to slow down this growing climate change. We are probably past the tipping point anyway.
Will we get more of the same for July?
