British Isles weather, June 2022

Low pressure that remained centred to the W of the British Isles on the 28th pushed frontal rain across most of Scotland and Ireland from the W before dawn, with some heavy falls over Ireland. The rain then spread E'wards during the day, lessening as it did so, reaching Cent S England, the Midlands and NE England by late evening. It was a rather cloudy day in most areas, although places E of a line Hull-Jersey did have some long spells of sunshine ahead of the rain. Behind the rain it was a showery day in places. (Coningsby 23.4C, Fair Isle 13.3C maximum, Redesdale Camp 4.3C minimum, Murlough 28.0 mm, Jersey Airport 12.3 h.)

A mainly S'ly flow persisted on the 29th. Rain spread E'wards across England during the morning, followed by showers across areas to the N and W. Falls were generally light across England and, with rather cloudy skies, many areas had little sunshine. It was a mild day across NE England and East Anglia. (Cranwell 24.1C, Fair Isle 13.6C maximum, Tain Range 9.1C minimum, Cassley 17.6 mm, Valley 8.1 h.)

On the 30th troughs led to spells of rain and showers in many areas, these turning thundery in areas of Wales, S England and the Midlands. Falls were heavy in places. E areas of Scotland had a more general area of rain that spread N'wards during the day while another area of frontal rain affected N Ireland and W Scotland during the day. The best of the sunshine was to be found in W Wales, S Wales and SW England. (Nantwich 21.4C, Fair Isle 13.0C maximum, Okehampton 5.4C minimum, Bradford 29.8 mm, St Athan 11.3 h.)
