August was going to be the month that could break the summer record from 1995 temperature's wise although most people were looking at 1976 as the benchmark. Rainfall wise the record wasn't under threat although the period May to August was sadly. Sadly the neither record was broken although it was only in the nine days that records failed to be broken and only just.  The period from May to August was warmer than in the same period 1976, 1995 and overall the period is a quite significant period of weather. August was a mild month and for most of the month it looked like it was going to be significantly warm. However the last nine days were significantly on the cool side bringing the average down into the mild side rather than warm. The month was the warmest since 2004 and the driest since 2011.  The hot weather from July continued into August with temperature's being a close to four degrees above normal. The warmest day was on the 5th when temperature's hit 28.3C with the 2nd close behind with 28.2C. Despite the day time temperatures the nights weren't to bad with 16.5C being the warmest night in this period otherwise temperature's were quite fresh.  This kept with the theme of the summer where hot weather didn't really produce any hot nights of note unlike similar hot spells in the past. The warmest nights were on the 19th and 17th recording lows of 17C these being the warmest nights of the summer. Weather turned fresher briefly from the 8th to the 9th with the first few days actually below average. However had lost the hot weather and this never returned during the rest of the month. It was still on the warm side from the 11th to the 22nd but temperatures like may stayed in the pleasant range of the lower 20's. At the time a record warm summer looked to be easily broken. On the 23rd though weather changed to cold conditions with temperatures being a good 2 degrees below normal for the period 22nd to the 29th. The month close de on a cool settled dry note taking the month into the 2nd warmest on record. However warmest May to August on record was safe. The cold spell at the end of the month produced the coldest nights with 8 degrees being recorded on the 30th. The dry run of months continued into August without any rain being recorded for the fist 7 days and only 2.3mm for the first ten days. From the 10th to the 20th only 2 days didn't have any rainfall recorded at all. However in this period only 6.5mm of rain fell. Things changed from the 23rd as it turned cooler with the heaviest rain of 11.2mm falling on the 26th. Some more rain fell on the 27th when it became dry and settled once more. It was the driest August since 2011. There weren't any Thunderstorms in August once again as Sheffield once more dodged any major Thundery activity keeping the trend of declining Thundery activity unchecked for yet another year. The reason for the decline in Thunderstorms isn't really understood and could just be a general quirk of recent weather. It wasn't a windy month without anything of note being recorded. September looks set to start on a warm note and mostly dry. The theme looks set to continue for most of the first part of the month with high pressure based to close to the south of UK keeping low pressure away to the north. It will be generally dry during this period with little in the way of the rain. This theme looks set to continue into the 2nd half of the month with any changes on the slow side. It looks possible that towards the end of the month it will turn cooler briefly before High pressure builds once again bringing a brief period of coll northerlies before it moves away with south westerlies allowing it turn milder again.
