The nicer spell in August never reached these parts.
Was lucky to have been away last week (got home yesterday) but here, a week that had looked promising was unsettled and coolish.
We had some torrential downpours overnight (I've seen some clips from Creamfields, taking place not that far away)
Forecast going forwards isn't exactly inspiring. Output showing the potential odd glimpse of promise as high pressure builds in, only for it to be knocked away from the NW after a depressingly brief 24-48 hours.
It's been an appalling summer (away from the SE, apparently) barring that spell covering late May and first 3 weeks of June.
Maddening how frequently over the past almost two decades the school summer holidays have coincided with the poorest weather of the summer; either the summer has been crap overall (2007-2012) or the best spell(s) have been in the period covering June to mid/late July.
