It is still dry in the Channel Islands, so far we are up to 40 consecutive days with no rain. This is on top of 28 days of no rain in April / May and with a low rainfall year.
So far the total rain this year is 229.6 mm which is about 200 mm short of the year to date norm.
Everywhere is looking stressed, trees are shedding leaves and the fields are like dust. However, the local desalination plant is working which gives us about 50% of the daily island water consumption so whilst the reservoirs are falling they are not empty.
It looks like we still have at least another week of no rain, the tourists will love it.
