More Needed July Rain

A further 12.9 mm of rain today brings the monthly total to nearly the long term average with 42.9 mm. Even though rainfall is now just about normal for July, after a bone-dry June and with the higher temperatures and sunshine, the soil moisture deficit has been high. Given the forecast of a return to hot and sunny weather, today’s rain will probably have all but disappeared and made little difference by the middle of the week. Still, it filled the water butts!
