- THREAD FOR VENTING ABOUT THE WEATHER
Payback for April, May and June of last year. Remember them?
April last year was very wet with the exception of a few decent days near the end. May and June were very dry, and July was exceptional.
Every year is different anyway.Posted 4 months ago
This is the wettest I’ve seen it in Summer. It’s like Summer 2012 and 2017 only worse. But not as bad as Winter 2015 – the worst I’ve ever seen it.Ben_HSubscriber
I’ve had the small mercy of travelling with work a lot, which means no long bike commutes and fewer MTB rides (apart from some wet Bromptoning around London).
Just as well the work has coincided with rain… I hope it means tons of sunshine is due for when I stop travelling.Posted 4 months ago
It’s not typical June weather.
June is on average the month which has the most Sun hours and is the 3rd warmest month of the year temperature wise.
It should not be a bog fest.
If you don’t expect it to be good in June then you might as well never expect it to get good because “on average” no other month is much better. Only July and August are comparable and slightly warmer.
I’m talking about expectations. Of cause any month can be rubbish, as we can see right now. But the probability of June turning out total rubbish is lower than any other month except July and August.Posted 4 months ago
June has often been a washout in recent years in the UK. As has July.
Probably a climate change thing.
Last year was a notable exception, in being dry and warm for ages.
The only month in recent years to be drier than June and July has been May which has been dry for 4 years in a row. But this is a fluke because pre-2016 it was usually a washout.Posted 4 months agoepicycloSubscriber
Today I was fed up of the weather, pissing rain, so loaded the bike in the car for a vintage ride.
I was totally prepared for misery.
Got to meeting point, rain stopped, sunshine most of day with the bonus of cooling headwinds.
Tracks were muddy and slimy though.
A win!Posted 4 months ago
