St Swithin's Day

Yesterday was St Swithin's Day and there was no rain so if the lore is correct the current settled dry weather should continue for the next 40 days.
So far in July we have only had 1.5mm of rain so the pastures are already looking dry.
There is some truth in the legend in that if high pressure over the Azores which directs the jet steam to the north is not established by mid July then the weather is likely to be unsettled.
