1000+ hours of sunshine passed for 2017

Today passed the 1000 hours mark of sunshine for 2017. A little later than normal. And yesterday passed the 100 hours total sunshine for this July.

Previous 1000 hours of sunshine ‘passing’ points:
2014 = 3rd July
2015 = 25th June
2016 = 12th July

Whether this year will end up with +2000 hours of sunshine remains to be seen but it is now, in August and in September that we need the sunshine hours to clock up to achieve that little milestone.
