August 2019 Commentary

August started very warm and there was a short hot spell towards the end of the month while in between, the temperatures usually only managed to reach the 20C mark or just above.

The month started dry but then there was a ten-day spell of wet weather with two very wet days on the 8th and 16th. This was again followed by ten days without rain before there was a little bit more rain in the last few days.

The month's average temperature was 18.7C nearly a degree above the average for the last decade while the rainfall total of 115.7mm was just above the average for the same period of time.

The combined figures for the months of June, July and August show that the summer was a shade warmer than average while the total rainfall was again just a little above the average.

I think that most people would consider this summer to have been pleasant enough while the year so far has been a little warmer and a little drier than the average over the last ten years with no great extremes.
