Last Months Report

July was a very mild record breaking month and overall a very wet month which isn't the normal way things work out unless the month has had severe storms which wasn't the case here. The month will generally be remembered for the short but extreme heatwave which hit the country towards the end of the month. The heatwave demonstrated the UK's normal lack of forward planning causing widespread travel disruption. If climate change is being recognized then why doesn't the modernization of the transport system take this onto account. Shops also had to withdraw food as coolers failed as they were unable to cope with the heat. The start of the month was actually on the cool side the first warm spell arrived on the 3rd with pleasant conditions. The warm spell lasted without any real interruptions until the 18th. This period also included the coldest nights with three nights dropping into single figures. The coolest night was on the 7th when 8.9C was the low. The highest temperatures in this period occurred on the 15th and 16th with 24.3C and 24.9C being the high. The 18th and 19th it turned cooler by day but night remained on the warm side. The thermostat started to crank up on 22nd as a 5 day heatwave arrived. Short and extreme. On the 22nd 26.8C was the high on the 23rd 30.5C was the high. The 24th was "Cooler" in that temperatures only reached 27.7C. All eyes were on the 25th as the day was expected to make new records. The day started sunny and although some cloud bubbled up this was too late to stop the mercury hitting a record smashing 35.1C beating easily the 34.2C set in August 1990. A hot evening followed with temperatures remaining well into 30's despite cloudy conditions at times. If the cloud hadn't arrived it may have gone much higher. The nights were very warm but the lows were a little down on what was expected . The warmest night being 17.2C recorded on the 26th. The month then took a sudden twist as the coldest day of the month arrived on the 28th with only 16.7C being reached. Temperatures recovered on the 29th as warm conditions returned. In recent years hot spells have been generally shorter but stronger when they have occurred where before heat generally built up over several days or longer. The heatwave produced the normal debate about climate change as people forget that after the warm summer in 2006 there weren't any hot summers until 2018. Climate change well climate always changes the question is how much is down to man and how much is natural variation with the human influence on top of that. July was a very dry month until 19th. Up to that point only 7.4mm of rain had fallen. The 19th brought the first rain of the month as 12.5mm fell. A weak rare Thunderstorm overnight on the 22nd brought 10.1mm. The failure of the predicted severe storms to materialized after the hottest day after left it looking like a dry month would be order. This changed during the 26th and 27th. Initially the heavy rain stayed to the east and north of Sheffield. The warm front pushed south westward during the 26th bringing heavy showers and more prolonged rain during the early hours of the 27th. This produced a total of 39.2mm of rain which pushed the month well past the average of 57mm. Further rain fell in heavy showers from the the 30th to the 31st.The heavy showers bringing up 37mm of rain. Again the month had a high rainfall total despite having very little in the way of Thundery activity. This seems to be the trend in recent years. The wet end of the month pushed the rainfall total over 100mm meaning a wet warm summer for 2019. The month although breezy at times wasn't ever really windy and windy conditions shown by the weather models tended to rapidly disappear closer to the actual time. For once July managed to produce a rare storm as the number Thunder days continues to drop. Storms were forecast on four days but only arrived on two days. Both weak affairs lasting about an hour with the rain and the strong breeze being the most notable feature as the lightning declined as the storm arrived. The heat on the 25th produced one distant rumble in the morning of the 26th. The last of the months thundery weather was on the 30th and 31st although the 31st was confined to north Sheffield and Rotherham and thunder wasn't observed at the station.. August will start on a showery warm theme with some heavy showers perhaps with Thunder. The showery theme will continue until the 9th before more unsettled weather with heavy rain moves across the country with the weather turning cooler as well. Around the middle of the month it will turn windy and cool as a cool north westerly flow replaces the south westerlies. As the low pressure that brought the north westerlies moves away towards Russia High pressure will build bringing the first dry settled spell for the final seven days of the month. Overall a mild month but also a wet month with above average rainfall once again.
