Latest Weather in Polis and Latchi
It's been a strange summer. After one of the driest winters on record and certainly the direst since we have lived here, this summer was remarkably cool with temperatures staying in the low to mid 30s until the middle of August when the temperature suddenly rocketed to over 40.
Thankfully the really hot and sticky temperatures only lasted a couple of weeks and since the start of September, it's been back to normal with a fresh cool breeze, perfect for cycling! We've even seen our first drop of rain!
