To a pessimistic person like me, August is when summer feels like it is coming to a close to me up here. The sun feels lower in the sky, my 8.30pm dog walk is getting dull and my 5am wee stop is getting darker too!
The opinions of people in my Warrington office seems to be that this summer has been terrible in the Greater Manchester / Merseyside area and "we haven't really had a summer". I personally don't think it has been as bad as that but it hasn't been good either. I would have liked a run of hot days. Most days have been warm and have had bits of sun but far too many days have had cloud and rain. Any settled spells have lasted 2 or 3 days at best.
August is looking less settled as always with the forecast for the next couple of weeks more showery than I have seen it for a while. Was hoping for a scorching end but it looks like we'll probably have to wait yet another year for a good August.
