The rain is due to start tomorrow, and it has been dry for a long time in Worthing now. However, only since 23 July (3 weeks ago). On that day the weather station recorded 7.8mm of rain. Previous to that we had a small amount (0.6mm) on 20 July, and the same amount also on 5 July. The total for the whole month of July was only 9.0mm of rain, which is low for a monthly total.

The month of June was wetter with 27.9mm of rain, but that may pale in comparison to the figures for August, especially if the promised downpours appear. We may end up dealing with a hosepipe ban and floods at the same time.
