August 2014

August was wetter than average with a whopping 91.9mm of rain, mainly falling during the two storms of the 8th and the 25th of the month. There were also three instances of thunder and one hail shower during the month.
One consequence of a wetter August was that is was much cooler than usual. The highest max was 26.6°C and lowest max only 16.3°C. The month maximum averaged out at only 21.6°C, though this weather prolonged summer flowering perennials around the Garden.
