August 2013 - The 1st week

Postby Nick Gardner » 2013 Aug 07, 18:19

After that memorable and rather unusual July, things have returned to something more normal but being the sheltered south coast of Devon under the present weather regime, things are still warm and reasonably sunny.

1st - 7th
Mean minimum = 13.8°C
Mean maximum = 22.6°C
Mean = 18.2°C
Rainfall = 6.1 mm
Sunshine = 62 hours.

Apart from the 4th when there was only 30 minutes of sunshine, skies have generally been rather (but not completely) cloud-free though the 1st and the 6th had unbroken sunshine. Much more cloud further inland where there have been showers too.

As with last year, no sign of any tomato blight and the amount of fruit I've picked so far has been amazing, as have the cucumbers.

The sunny and warm theme continued today with a maximum of 24.2°C and over 9 hours of sunshine so far.

A fine, warm evening.

(19:18), 21.0°C, RH 63%, DP 13.7°C, 1015 hPa (R), Wind 3 mph SSW.
