    Looking at just England and Wales and that with the exception of 2006 and to a lesser degree 2003, the Julys of the 2000s have been disappointing.

    If we take the CET, sunshine and rainfall figures and assign +, -, = to the figures ie, an above average CET month (+0.5 and greater) as a +, (+0.5 to -0.5) as = and a below average (-0.5 and greater) as -

    ++>1.5C above the CET average, - - < below the 1.5C average,

    + + + > 2.5C above the CET average, - - - < below the 2.5C average.

    Sunshine: a + to a month with >105%, = to 95% to 105% and - to <95%

    + +>125%, <75% - -,

    + + +> 150%, - - - < 50%

    Rainfall: a + to a month with >105%, = to 95% to 105% and - to <95%

    + +<75%, >125% - -,

    + + + <50%, >150% - - -,

    + + + + <25%, - - - - > 200%

    Those %s are compared to the 1971-2000 averages.

    2000

    CET: -

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: -

    2001

    CET: +

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: =

    2002

    CET: =

    Rainfall: -

    Sunshine: -

    2003

    CET: +

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: -

    2004

    CET: -

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: -

    2005

    CET: =

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: -

    2006

    CET: + + +

    Rainfall: + +

    Sunshine: + +

    2007

    CET: -

    Rainfall: - - - -

    Sunshine: -

    2008

    CET: =

    Rainfall: - - -

    Sunshine: =

    2009 (provisional)

    CET: =

    Rainfall: - - - -

    Sunshine: -

    Sum totals

    CET:

    5+s

    4=s

    2-s

    Rainfall

    2+s

    5=s

    12-s

    Sunshine

    2+s

    2=s

    7-s

    So the Julys of the 2000s have a nett of

    9+s, 11=s, 21-s , so the negatives far outweigh the positives.

    Its at its most simplisitc and would welcome modifications and a more detail analysis.

    Yes the July's of the 2000's have been fairly poor with the exception of 2006 and 2003, although I would also bring 2005 into the category of fairly decent July's.

    Quite uncanny how the mid summer month has also been mirrored by January as the least wintry of the winter months in the 2000's with only 2001 and 2009 resembling wintry months, what has happened to our mid winter and summer months. June and December have been stealing the limelight in the 2000's as resembling true summer and winter months, never used to be like this...

    Using the same system for the Junes of the 2000s

    2000

    CET: +

    Rainfall: + +

    Sunshine: -

    2001

    CET: =

    Rainfall: + +

    Sunshine: +

    2002

    CET: =

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: -

    2003

    CET: + +

    Rainfall: -

    Sunshine: +

    2004

    CET: +

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: +

    2005

    CET: +

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: +

    2006

    CET: + +

    Rainfall: + + +

    Sunshine: + +

    2007

    CET: +

    Rainfall: - - - -

    Sunshine: -

    2008

    CET: =

    Rainfall: =

    Sunshine: +

    2009

    CET: +

    Rainfall: +

    Sunshine: +

    CETs

    9+s

    3=s

    0-s

    Rainfall

    8+s

    4=s

    5-s

    Sunshine

    8+s

    0=s

    3-s

    25+s, 7=s, 8-s, so it is clear the Junes of the 2000s have been a far better summer overall than the Julys with the positives outweighing the negatives.

    Was August 2002 a poor month. I certainly remember June of that year was westerly dominated but generally dry here then it became westerly and wet in July but some of the best summer weather I remember of that year came in August. I was sailing during the first week and I remember it being very warm around the 6th, 7th with a thunderstorm on the 9th. Then the following week I was in Oxford and the weekend of the 17th/18th when I was in London, it was 30C and lovely! September that year was fantastic too.

    No he didn't- a "-" sign for rainfall indicates well above average, which August 2004 emphatically was.

    The lack of notably sunnier-than-average Augusts is notable, though it was achieved locally in 2000 (Northern Ireland, parts of Midlands & East Anglia) and 2003 (much of north-eastern Britain, SE England). Of course we don't have to look back very far for a very dull one...
