The last time it failed to reach 20C was the 30th June (19.9C) and the last colder than average day was the 19th June (by a fraction of a degree). The last time it was one degree or more colder than average was the 5th June - nearly three months ago!



That really is staggering. 

Maybe 7-8  below average days here in July , less in August:  5/8/2022, 29/08/2022 and yesterday was probably about average for end of August.(18.5).   July average max 22.3 and August 23.3c so as good a July/August as you can get here really. 

Quite easy to get cooler days here, either from easterly muck (not really this year) or from cool N-Westerlies.    Even in the best of Summers. 


People across the country including here say 1976 was 3 months of hot weather which definitely won't have been the case here.

Just a quick scan and there are plenty of cooler days certainly here:

Not a single maximum below 22.1C here either with just one morning of significant rainfall. One hell of a summer August!
