Settled anticyclonic weather predominated during the month. For the first ten days, the high-pressure area was centred over Britain and Ireland with higher-than-average temperatures. On 11th, the pressure declined, and cold unsettled weather arrived from the north. By 15th, another anticyclone to the east became established, eventually bringing a flow of hot, settled, southeasterly air from 19th.
