25th July - Today's News: Coldest July Day in Evesham in at least 12 years
Well yesterday was not only my wettest day of the year so far (19.1mm) but also, with a maximum of just 14.6c (recorded at 00.44am), my coldest July day on record (from 2003). Interestingly, my previous coldest July day was the 21st July 2007 when Evesham was under flood after the wettest day ever. No flooding this time though and with the ground very dry, the Avon has barely risen an inch! Today there should be a brief return to summer, before more rain tomorrow.
