August 2017 – rather cool in Central England

Figure 1

August 2017 in Central England was rather a cool affair, which would have been even cooler, if it hadn’t been for some warmer values in the last 10 days of the month. I made the mean temperature 15.6°C which gave it an anomaly of -0.8°C using the 1981-2010 long-term average (fig 1). This was the first below average month in Central England since January, nine of the last thirteen August’s have been cooler than average (fig 2).

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.
