June 2013 - The first half

Postby Nick Gardner » 2013 Jun 16, 09:52

A generally sunny and dry first half of June but still with plenty of cool nights.

June 2013 (1st - 15th)
Mean minimum = 9.0°C
Mean maximum = 19.4°C
Mean = 14.2°C
Rain = 8.8 mm
Sunshine = 134 hours

The cloudier conditions of the recent few days has knocked the sunshine back a bit but it is still a big improvement on this time last year:

June 2012 (1st - 15th)
Mean minimum = 11.5°C
Mean maximum = 16.9°C
Mean = 14.2°C
Rain = 80.2 mm
Sunshine = 28.4 hours

Even though the mean temperature at this point was the same as last year, this June so far has been totally different (and for the better). Only 28.4 hours of sunshine for the first 15 days of June 2012!!! The sunshine amount did increase during the 2nd half of the month but the total was still extremely low with just 106.3 hours.
