Heavy rainfall in Alvechurch

Alvechurch amateur weatherman Phil Thomas records the changes.

It has been a very mixed month. June started with quite warm conditions to the 5th. On the 5th we received 26.1mm rain, and 35.1mm on the 6th – a total of 61.2mm, which is 99 per cent of the entire month’s average rainfall.

The cooler weather continued for a week or so but then started to become much warmer into the last week, feeling very humid and sticky over the last few days of the month.

The average temperature over the month was 14.9C, which is 0.6C above the monthly average. The total rainfall to June 29 was 99.8mm, which is 161 per cent of the month’s average. Sunshine to the 29th was 168.3 hours,  124 per cent of the month’s average.

The outlook for the first week of July in quite warm and humid with possibly thundery outbreaks, before a return to more normal UK temperatures. The southern part of the UK may be drier but a little more changeable to the north, with The Village area possibly fitting somewhere between this.

Weather Lore:
No weather is ill, if the wind be still.

Calm conditions, especially with clear skies, indicate the dominance of a high pressure area. Because highs are broad regions of descending air, they discourage the formation of phenomena typically associated with weather, such as clouds, wind, and precipitation.
