|Temperature & Rainfall Records for August 2016|
Thursday, 1 September 2016
Wednesday was a decent end to the month. Not a great deal of sunshine more warm and cloudy and although August has been a good month it’s had a few naff days thrown in for good measure.
August's average temperature has finished up above average based on the last few years and that's been due to relatively mild night time temperatures rather than a string of excessively high daytime temperatures.
The first couple of weeks of the month were almost rain free but the last couple of weeks have made up for that and it's finished up with more than average rainfall.
August sees an end to meteorological summer for this year as the beginning of September is the start of meteorological autumn.
