THIS JULY HAS TRANSITIONED FROM WET AND COOL IN THE EARLY PART OF THE MONTH INTO
A DRIER AND MORE MILD `SUMMER` REGIME. IT HAS BEEN UNREMARKABLE IN TERMS OF
TEMPERATURE AS WE HAVE BEEN NEAR CLIMATE AVERAGES QUITE CONSISTENTLY. IT IS A
DEPARTURE FROM THE WARMING TREND OF RECENT YEARS HOWEVER. THERE WERE 25 DAYS OF
RAINFALL THIS MONTH BUT ACCUMULATION TOTALS WERE LESS THAN AVERAGE. FOG WAS
EQUALLY PREVALENT AND INDICATIVE OF THE HIGHER PRESSURE TREND TOWARD THE END OF
THE MONTH.
