AUGUST was a warm and relatively dry month.
Temperatures were 1.5 degrees above the average, reaching just over 30C on two occasions.
The mean minimum and maximum temperatures were 12.3C and 24C respectively.
Just over 4cm of rain fell, much of that on the first day of the month.
You would normally expect at least 5cm to fall during August.
Most of the year’s rain normally falls between October and January, so be prepared!
