    Rain and sub 16 degree temps forecast all week do not a happy cyclist make.

    I sat indoors in shorts and t-shirt yesterday with the window open watching the TdF. It was freezing.

    I went on my first “winter” ride in July yesterday. Soaked through and shivering at the end of it.
    It was beautiful weather on saturday evening when i went out for a run though, so only 50% complaining about the weather this weekend

    Went to an outdoor wedding on Dartmoor on Saturday…

    Weather on Saturday, glorious and sunny, sat outside the Old Gate having a beer, Sunday 13degs and raining.

    Heating on here.

    Spent the weekend near Aldeburgh, biblical rain overnight on Friday, big waves crashing onto the beach on Saturday & the sea the colour of builders tea! Cleared up on Saturday afternoon but back to normal on Sunday. The sound of rain on a caravan roof is usually quite soporific but not when it hammers all flippin’ night!
    Cambridge Folk Festival next weekend so praying for an about-turn in the weather—pleeeeeaaasssse not another wet one–

    folks, this is Britain.

    Weather like this in July is perfectly normal.

    Sorry.

    It’s not though. We had a month’s rain in one day on Friday alone.

    Saturday – sunny, went for a cycle
    Sunday – grey – windy – forecast of rain – went for a cycle – it rained.

    Still enjoyed it. Rule 5.

    what’s your point?

    edit: average uk rainfall for July is something like 100mm*. that is a lot to fall in one day, i don’t remember Friday being particularly wet…?

    (an event like that would usually make the news)

    (*and it’s quite variable, as you’d expect)

    It is bogging out there. Should go for a ride, but can’t face it (and have too many other things to do anyway).

    Supposed to be warm again next week…

    It wasn’t hyperbole. The only reason I know is it did make the news.

    and?

    if the average rainfall is around 100mm, that would be about 3mm per day.

    3mm per day, for the whole of July would be weird. One day with a lot of rain is not.

    You said it’s ‘perfectly normal’ weather. It’s demonstrably not. But whatever floats your boat (this rain most likely will).

    It’s demonstrably not

    Very little rain fell over the UK during the first three weeks of the month. With dry ground and high temperatures, a number of wildfires were reported across southern England, including the London area. The prolonged heat led to numerous Heat-Health Watch warnings from 13th to 23rd, mainly across the South East.

    Later in the month, the weather broke down with a lot of showery activity, some of it thundery, giving some very large rainfall totals over localised areas. On 23rd, lightning strikes disrupted train and tram services in Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. There was flooding reported in parts of Nottinghamshire on the 23rd, around Glasgow on the 25th and West Yorkshire on the 30th.

    This is the historic report for July 2013…

    You know its a shit summer when 14C and two hours of sunshine has you commenting on how nice the weather is!

    In Glasgow we’ve just had extended daylight hours to mark the summer, the temperature has barely moved since April.

    The thing is, I don’t mind it feeling like January… if it is actually January. But we went out yesterday and up on the open exposed moorland it was truly horrible. You couldnt see a thing as it was like riding through a cloud, it was really windy, the rain was horizontal, but it was warm enough to ensure you were sweating your arse off in a waterproof. Horrible!

    You’re talking about a single storm. He’s talking about that it can rain in July, that said it’s not unusual to get storms in July.
