Wet weather across Europe last week
More roasting in western Russia
By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 05:44hrs 16/7/12
Temperature: 12.7C Weather: Rain
Total rainfall charts for Europe last week (bottom of page) showing totals of over 100mm+ over parts of the UK, NE France, the Low Countries and western Germany as well as Denmark.
In fact, much of central Europe saw rainfall totals significantly above what one would expect for the second week in July. However, there are some notable drier areas in parts of the Baltic States and Finland.
The southern third of the continent had a much drier week again with lots of sunshine here too.
The chart below for western Russia shows how dry the west of Russia was last week once again...
And just look at how hot that area was too, with most places 3C above normal maximum daytime temperatures, but some parts of the Ukraine, Romania, Moldovia and Bulgaria at 5C above normal...
