Monthly Weather Summary

AUGUST  -   warmest and wettest in my records - but fair to say it was a poor month. Rain fell on virtually every day and was evenly distributed throughout. The 15 days of 8th - 22nd all saw a least 1 mm of rain (a wet spell) and it was often overcast with no particulalry good days standing out. It was briefly hot, dry and sunny 24-25th but that was it. Through the 10th - 22nd it was particularly disappointing with low day-time temperatures. Subsequently, with cloudy skies at night it was often warm overnight and it was the mean minimum temperature (highest in August for my records / 2nd equal highest at Newton Rigg since 1900) that was solely responsible for the month being so warm.

Warmest and wettest recorded - MSLP was -3.6 Mb below average, rainfall 153.6% of the average for 2007-18 and the temp' was 1.13°c above average (2009-18).

Rainfall totalled 162.7 mm   (CR school 176.2 mm)  -  Mean Min' of 11.81°c  -  Mean Max' 18.95°c  -  with a highest maximum of 29.0°c (25th) and a lowest minimum of 5.8°c (13th).

There were: no frosts, Tunder was heard on two days and with 24.9 mm the 8th was the wettest day.

  Summary   - is now updated with August's weather report.

Maulds Meaburn - September, kids back at school, start thinking about Christmas (NO), next year's holidays - but will the month be an extension of summer (or indeed, the summer!) or will autumn arrive early and the central heating is back on way too early?   -   The mean temperature has ranged from 11.41°c (2015) to 14.08°c (2016).
