July was the first month in 2011 which was too cool.
Germany experienced an overcast July 2011 which was particularly cool in the southwest of the country and particularly wet in the east. It was the first overly cool month this year. As the initial analysis by the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) of data from its around 2,000 weather stations shows the weather was in stark contrast with last year's July which shone out with abundant sunshine and very high temperatures.
Only in a few areas in the north was the weather too warm.
