Looks like more rain forecast for this week. I can't remember an August that has been as bad as this.

The veat was on in the house this morning. I haven't noticed that for a while. Felt strange when also looking out at a sunny, clear blue sky. The overnight low was 8.6C, which is the lowest I've seen since early July; the temperature did rise quicker that morning though. It's currently 13.4C.

Met Éireann on their website are saying a lot of dry weather this week with some showers. Doesn’t sound that bad at all unless I am missing something. Saturday was a cloudy day in Dublin but yesterday was quite nice, spent most of the day in the park. I think August has been fine so far with temps around 20 degrees. Not sure what all the fuss is about. There was that one night where it lashed rain but by the time I was heading to work it was dry

Lovely fresh morning, the first in a while.

I thought the summer was fine. Very few hot days while was great and for me made up for the horrible mild winter.

Speaking of which I happened to look up when the winter thread started last year and that started on the 19th August last year.

It's nearly that time of year folks.

August continues to trend very poor over the next 10 to 12 days with cooler than average conditions and unsettled. There are signs of an improvement in temperatures with less rainfall from about the 23rd of August, so there is hope that the last week of August may see a return to more seasonal conditions. Fingers crossed first half of September is decent offering a final taste of summer before Autumn weather becomes properly established. I would agree that Summer has felt very short this year, due to the cold conditions for much of June. We were lighting fires up to week 3.

Even yesterday, people kept telling me "oh Sundays gonna be a washout". It hit 21c at one stage here in Wexford,the UKMO forecast for the week is giving a low crossing the South of the country on Wednesday,we might get lucky and it'll miss us altogether and bring heavy rain to the UK. Another potential wet and windy day on Saturday though.
I'm hoping that the signs of a warm sunny end to the month do come to fruition.

Not everyday most days though. If there's any sun it comes out very late due to fog so we're goosed down here
