Weather Report – June 2014

In Plymtree the total rainfall I measured for the month was 70.7mm. The average (1981-2010) at Dunkeswell Airfield is 66.0mm. This means that we received 107% of the Dunkeswell average. The wettest day of June was the 26th with 15.0mm and there were 10 rain days (rainfall ≥ 1mm). This compares to an average of 9.2 days for Dunkeswell. Rainfall occurred mostly during the first and last weeks of the month with the period from the 9th to the 25th seeing no rain days apart from the 15th when 2.5 mm was recorded. Thunderstorms occurred overnight on the 6th/7th. The highest temperature recorded was 28.1°C on the 19th. This will be slightly higher than official local records because of the sheltered location of my temperature sensor. The lowest temperature, 6.2°C, was recorded on the 1st.
