Penzance - Record July Cool - day & night

On 30th it reached only 17.0C in Penzance, despite prolonged sunshine (over 80% of the possible sunshine today - so far - even up on the moors at Bosullow ... rial=10005 )

Maximum temperatures < 17.5C are unusual in Penzance late July / August. Taking late July to be 20th - 31st, during the period 1992-2015 there have been (including today) only 4 days when the temperature has failed to reach 17.5C

These are:-
20/7/11 15.7C - Dull, occasional rain.
24/07/15 16.4C - Showery rain, some late afternoon sunshine prevented this being a new cool record.
26/07/09 17.0C - Rain all day.
and today
30/07/15 17.0C - Long periods of sunshine.

So a new 'cool' record for a late July sunny day.

The recent very cool conditions have been offset by prolonged sunshine, so the beaches have still been busy.

Followed by easily my coldest July night on record - 6.9C

Coldest July nights (1992-2015)
31/07/15 - 6.9C
16/07/01 - 7.9C
07/07/08 - 8.3C

Still - lovely sunny day today (31st) with the temperature gradually recovering to 18.8C. In very light winds feeling rather more like summer again.
