    The Open and weather?

    I've been watching The Open and wonder how typical the weather is for mid-summer southern England? Where I live in far southern Texas it would be typical winter weather for us. We seldom have frost or freezing, but of corse we have many days above 100%. A cool day, in the summer where I hunt, would be rainy with a low of 70 and a high in the upper 80s. capt david

    The weather is not typical for an English Summer's day. In the South it is light at around 04:30 at this time of year, dark towards 22:00. Days will be predominantly dry, but there will be clouds and light winds prevailing from the South West. It will rain a few days in the month. Average daytime temperature is around 22degC (72degF) with nighttime some 10deg cooler. We have just had a fairly long spell of unseasonally dry weather and you are looking at our 'catchup'!!
    Temperatures do rise higher, but any prolonged hot spell tends to lead to the humidity building up quite quickly and thunderstorms.
