Watford Weather – June 2016

Surprisingly so June has been a warm month finishing off 1.1c above the CET average. It has been the warm nights which has kept the temperatures high, there wasn’t any heat waves and it has also been a month with lots of thunder storms, heavy showers and plenty of rainbows. With the increasing amount of showers it has been the 11th wettest June and one of the dullest.

The highest temperature in the UK during the month was 27.8c in 

Porthmadog, North Wales.

Here in Watford the maximum temperature was 25.3c and quite wet although very rare to have the same amount of rainfall 2 months in a row. Below are the detailed stats. Looking towards the rest of July it is looking mild and humid with some very warm spells. This will be especially so when the jet stream pushes north of the UK.
