July 2019 proved to to be on the warm side with a mean maximum temperature of 22.7C, 1.9C warmer than the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 14.7C, 1.0C above average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 27.8C on the 25th, cooler than July 2018's highest max of 29.6C. The lowest minimum air temperature was 10.2C on the 4th, and lowest grass minimum was 8.3C on the 4th. Therefore no ground or air frosts were recorded during the month.

July was drier than average with 28.8mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, just 63% of the average and about three quarters of that fell in the final 3 days of the month. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 31.2mm during July 2019. The wettest day was the 29th with 10.7mm collected in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater occurred on 8 days during June 2019 with 10mm or more on 1. It is interesting to compare July 2019 with the two previous July rainfall totals which were both much wetter. 2017 had 225% of the average and last year 131%.

Just taking a look back at 2018, the mean daily maximum temperature was 15.5C, 1.0C above the long term average, and mean daily minimum 8.9C, 0.7C above the average. Ten air frosts were recorded (1 in Jan, 4 in Feb and 5 in Mar), well below the average of 14.4. There were 51 ground frosts (11 in Jan, 19 in Feb, 12 in Mar, 3 in Oct, 3 in Nov and 3 in Dec). Rainfall from my manual gauge was 1015.4mm, 120% of the average and wettest since 2014.

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.
