AUGUST 2015 - NEAR AVERAGE TEMPERATURES, BUT DULL AND WET.

WEATHER: A settled, warm and rather sunny start to the month. Becoming increasingly unsettled, rainy and cloudy after the 10th. For the most part winds were relatively light.
TEMPERATURE: 0.28 °C below average monthly mean. A rather cold August night on the 1st, which gave the lowest temperature of this month, but daytime temperatures were on the warm side until the 10th. Thereafter warm days were few with the exception of the 21st and 22nd, the latter being the hottest day of the month.
RAINFALL: 93.4 mm, 181% of average. The first 10 days were very dry but rainfall in the last three weeks was regular, frequent and often prolonged/heavy. There were two very wet days on the 13th and 24th and the BH Monday was a washout.
SUNSHINE: c. 132 hours, well below average. The third very dull August since 2008. The first 9 days were rather sunny but from the 10th only the 22nd was a truly sunny day as cloud dominated the skies and the last two days of the month were sunless.
