July 2018 proved to be warmer than average with the mean maximum temperature of 23.7C, 2.9C above the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 15.4C, 1.7C above average making July the fourth month in a row with above average temperatures. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 29.6C on the 8th, just 0.4C cooler than the all time record. The lowest minimum air temperature during the month was 12.9C on the 15th, and lowest grass minimum temperature was 10.6C recorded on the 14th, 15th, 17th, 19th, 25th and 26th! The highest 09:00hrs 30cm soil temperature was 21.1C recorded on several days during the month and between the 9th and 22nd the soil moisture probe, which measures soil water tension at a depth of 10cm, recorded 200 centibars its 'driest' value, before around 15mm of rainfall filtered down through the soil profile and values then dropped steadily through the rest of July settling at 90 centibars by the 31st.

Perhaps surprisingly after the near record breaking dry June in Teignmouth and continuation of the drought in other parts of the UK, July was wetter than average with 59.7mm recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, 131% of the average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 65.6mm. The wettest day was the 28th when 16.6mm was recorded in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was recorded on 9 days during the month with 10mm or more on 3 days.

The tables above show weather conditions recorded by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station sited in Teignmouth, South Devon. They are usually updated every 10 minutes. All times are Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so add one hour for British Summer Time (BST).

* Air temperature is measured 1.9m above ground level and the anemometer is just 2.2m above ground level in a NNW/SSE oriented valley. The wind direction is therefore heavily biased towards either the up or down valley direction and the anemometer is very sheltered from the prevailing westerly flow by higher ground directly upstream. The thermistor that measures grass tip temperature only has a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit and this has been automatically converted into Celcius to the nearest 0.1 degrees. A grass temperature of < 0°C indicates the occurrence of a ground frost (air temperature < 0°C indicates an air frost). The leaf wetness sensor monitors the level of surface moisture on foliage and hence the occurrence of dew, fog, drizzle, rain etc. Soil moisture is measured in centibars (cb) [0-10cb = saturated soil, 10-30cb = ground adequately wet, 30-100cb = ground needs irrigating to maintain maximum production, 100-200 cb = ground dry. ]. The strength of the sun's ultraviolet radiation is expressed as a UV index and was developed by the World Health Organization. As a guide 0-2 = low, 3-5 = medium, 6-7 = high, 8-10 = very high, 11+ = extreme. You can safely stay outside if UV is low, and it is recommended that you wear sunscreen if levels are moderate or higher, and seek shade if levels are high or above. In Teignmouth UV levels reach 7 in mid-summer and may reach 8 on exceptional days.
