Let's be honest, it is not exactly the weather we would like to see as we head towards the end of July.

Just in time for the school holidays- rain, showers and cool temperatures have dominated the last few days.

It has not been a complete 'wash out'. We have had some good spells of sunshine and warm temperatures - but early statistics already point towards a wetter and cooler than average month for our part of the world.

Unfortunately, with the Jet Stream over the UK we will continue to see unsettled weather dominate as we end the month.

Here's hoping August gets things back on track!
