August was statistically mild and wet, but again the variation 
through the month was significant. 
Much of the month saw typical mean temperatures, 
but it was warmer 1st - 9th and 22nd -31st
especially hot from 23rd - 27th.
Most of the rain fell in the first half of the month, 
while it remained dry 1st-3rd and 20th-26th
It was particularly windy 9th-10th , less so 15th-16th and 30th-31st.
While the highest pressure was around the median,  
unseasonably low pressure when it came was in the lower quartile.
A good growing and harvesting month for fruit and vegetables.
