The weather of the month so far

Note that whatever the current date, averages refer to the month as a whole. Thus by 10th June we might expect percentages of rainfall and sunshine to be around 33% (as we are one-third through the month) and the temperature anomaly to be slightly negative (as June tends to get warmer as the month unfolds). There is no significant monthly cycle in air pressure so the pressure anomaly is always a true reflection of the conditions up to the current date.

Thanks are due to Sean Batty of STV weather; discussions with him provided me with the impetus to create these maps.
