We had some pretty decent weather in July 2014, making it the 8th warmest July in our national records, and it was also sunnier than average. It might not have been as warm as last July (3rd warmest) or indeed July 2006 (1st), but it's interesting to note that this July was the eighth month in a row with warmer than average temperatures for the UK. Will this warmer weather last for August, and could we get another scorcher?
