August temperatures still flatlining

Figure 1

Temperatures in central England are still flatlining this month (fig 1). Provisional till the 15th, indicate that 2017 has been the coldest start to an August since 1993. It seems that August can all too easily get stuck in a rut in some years, and it looks like 2017 is one of those years. The current mean maximum anomaly is 1.14°C lower than the 1961-1990 average.

About xmetman

I am an exmetman who is passionate about all things to do with weather and climate. I have no axe to grind, and am continually upsetting people on both sides of the global warming debate with the articles that I publish, hell, I'm even banned from commenting on the Met Office's own blog! What I do fight for is the freeing up of climate, observational and forecast data collected and created on our behalf by the Meteorological Office.
