Weather & Tide

Weather outlook for July

July is often the warmest month but can be the wettest month of the English summer. Atlantic depressions can be frequent, bringing long spells of rain. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are always possible. North westerly winds are drier with sunnier weather. Occasionally southerly winds may bring hot, moist air and humid, hazy conditions. High pressure brings hot sunny days with temperatures around 21 oC, but the often sultry conditions can trigger thunderstorms spreading from the south coast.
