Hoping for a much warmer July than last year here. I think we had one day with a max above 20 degrees!

I'll wait until end of the month with my prediction.

17.6c and 45mm please.

I'm going to take the ECM extended at its word here. Mostly high pressure dominated, but occasionally slipping north and west to allow cooler spells. The occasional front toppling over the top.

16.1 and 87.2 mm rain. A slightly warmer version of 1988. 

I hope not, July 1988 was a washout here and consistently cool. No thank you! I'll reserve thoughts on Wednesday. Hoping for at least one spell of dry sunny very warm weather, maxes 25-28 degrees, that's what I expect from July, much more so than August. July is our king summer month for warm dry sunny weather, August usually delivers warm wet weather.
