Absolutely sick to death of this vile rubbish. It is yet another disgusting grey weekend of repellent humid grey muck with the temperature failing to drop below 16.5C overnight yet will struggle to hit 20C Why the hell can't we get a nice settled dry spell with sunshine, low humidity and pleasant temperatures?
July 2019 is one of the worst summer months I can remember. The first week was grotesque, it was poor when I was away and it has been garbage since I returned. Suffered a horrific day stuck inside a sweltering office yesterday when it was 26C and sunny outside only for the evening to be repulsively humid and overcast with yet more rain making 10 out of 11 days to record rain. An umitigated horror show
There hasn't been a single decent weekend day all month. Another summer month where the weekend curse strikes in the extreme.
Weekday sunshine: 5.5hrs
Weekend sunshine: 3.2hrs and likely to drop further after this dross
This follows hot on the heels of August 2018 (5.9 hrs, 3.2hrs) and July 2016 (5.0hrs, 2.5hrs). It just defies rational explanation. The office I work in is has no air conditioning and is just unbearable in summer even on a sunny day at just 17C. So to endure that and constantly suffer grey crap at the weekends is just torture. Grim and depressing beyond words.
Sunday was doing well up to June but Saturday has been hideous all year. We have so far had two mostly sunny Saturdays since the start of April when even the worst years of 2011 and 2014 managed six between April and September. We are going to need a very good run now just to equal those appalling years.
This is the sunshine recorded on Saturdays this month:
6th: 2.2 hrs
and today is just more of the same. Can't see even 3 hours being achieved with a seemingly constant stream of utter filth pouring in off the North Sea.
Just how the hell is this remotely acceptable for a summer month? I can't remember the last time November was this grim. Even in last years horrible dull wet atrocity we managed one decent Saturday (10th with 5.7 hrs).
How on earth can a summer month be so bad that none of the four Saturdays record even 3 hours sun? Not even June 2007, June 2012 and July 2012 sunk this low. Not even close. I am so glad I was away for half this month because just enduring half has been bad enough.
Looks like a continuation of poor weather next week as well. Just depressing beyond words
